Contract tendering: how we go out to market to get you competitive deals

Straightforward, targeted contract tendering helps us make sure you aren’t paying too much for your energy

When it comes to business energy, the main goal for any organisation is to find the most advantageous and economically viable contract . . . and then secure it. This is where effective contract tendering is essential.

When completed yourself, contract tendering can be a daunting and time-consuming task, involving reaching out to numerous energy providers and examining various factors in order to settle on the most suitable option overall. Our procurement services, however, mean we take on the role of contract tendering for you. We take the time to audit your organisation, assess your requirements and present them to potential suppliers so that they can put together accurate, tailored and cost effective tenders for your utility contracts.

So how does contract tendering work, and what can you expect from professional procurement services?

Understanding contract tendering

Contract tendering involves working closely with a range of potential suppliers who will then tender for your business. As procurement specialists, our role in this process it to negotiate the most suitable utilities contract for your organisation, exploring options and highlighting those which reflect your business needs. With years of experience under our belt, we can use market analysis insight, honed negotiation skills, and our relationships with energy suppliers in order to find you the most competitive offer possible.

We understand the market, and act wholly independently of any suppliers. Our services include getting to know your business so we can find the contracts that meet your needs. We’ll analyse your usage and energy supply needs, and monitor all wholesale energy market prices to determine the market entry point.

Once we understand your business, we will send out Invitations to Tenders (ITTs) to an agreement list of suppliers who meet your criteria. This will include any specific requirements you’ve highlighted, such as green energy, payment terms and more.

Our tendering process: clarity, specificity and timeliness

Unclear or unfocused contract tendering leads to a more difficult and longwinded process, as well as less successful results. That’s why getting to know your organisation is essential to us, so we can seek out deals tailored to your needs. For example, if value for money is the most important factor to you and your organisation, we can be abundantly clear about the budget and what you expect for that money when seeking out contracts. This allows for deals which are mutually beneficial and potentially inspiring. Likewise, we can also find deals championing flexibility, security or sustainability, depending on what is most important to you.

We will make your expectations known from the outset when it comes to contract tendering, including your priorities, your budget, and your preferred timeline. By getting to know how your business works, we can familiarise ourselves with what ideas and approaches are best served to suit your overall needs.
