A new Public Business Tender arrives – to bid or not to bid?

You need to interpret the tender document confidently and clearly as well as understand the steps involved to produce a professional tender proposal and to become a final contender in the competition.

Not every public tender issued that is of interest to you is worth the effort of tendering. Sometimes the right decision is not to bid.
