Business with governments and large entities is systematic and streamlined. It needs strong bid preparation and tender response capacity to understand the business opportunity and respond accordingly.  A thorough needs assessment and analysis of the cause/need you want to bid for is the initial step. Further, it entails engaging the right group of stakeholders and obtaining their input in planning. Subsequent planning and a concrete solution that is supported by the agreement of all the key stakeholders furnishes the raw material for your writing. The next level is your skills in writing clearly and concisely – along with the other components of the 7 C’s in writing. An important additional consideration is the administrative requirements of the donor/sponsor. This can include required attachments, formats, printing and packaging instructions etc.
