You should not be intimidated by a tender writing project, but you should know how important it is. You cannot afford to make simple mistakes that could ruin the rest of your work. The people who are reading it may ignore everything that you have done correctly if you have made some glaring mistakes. Do you want to have your proposal rejected just because of this? With a little bit of time and work, you can make sure that you do not do something simple that makes it so that you wasted all of your time. Below are a few things that you should keep in mind.
To start with, go back to the instructions even after you are done. Look at what you were trying to accomplish. Writing projects have a way of organically changing while you are working on them. Sometimes, this can be very good because the flow of the work will be much better. Other times, though, this can be a disaster. You could get so far away from the heart of what you were supposed to be doing that the tender almost does not make sense. Even if it is well-written, it will not be accepted if you are too far off topic. Go back to the beginning when you get done and make sure that everything that you did was in the right direction.
Next, you need to proofread many times. Mistakes in spelling and grammar can be very hard to find if you just skim through your work one time. You will already know in your mind what you meant to say. Sometimes, your brian will just fill things in so that they look right to you. In order to really find your mistakes, you have to force yourself to slow down. You can do this by reading everything out loud. The process of saying the words will make you slow down and actually take in what is on the page. It is a good idea to have someone else look it over before you declare it to be done.
You also need to check the details to make sure that they are not wrong. For example, you may have inserted your own contact information into the end of the proposal so that the people who read it can get back to you. If you spelled your email address incorrectly or if you put down the wrong phone number, they may not be able to get in touch with you even if they like everything that you have written. When their attempts to contact you fail, they may just give up and decide that it is not worth their time. Check all of the details, including any address, facts, or figures.
Even those who have been practicing tender writing for years can make some of these mistakes. In fact, people who are very comfortable with what they are doing often make the most mistakes. You do not want to be overly stressed by these things, but you do need to keep them on the edge of your mind. Do not just relax and assume that you have done everything the right way. If you look for the things that are listed above, you can make sure that your tender is perfect when it is submitted.
