RFPs and Tenders

Responding to RFPs and tenders is an important but time-consuming process, requiring real attention to detail. With over 10 years’ experience in financial service bid writing, it’s something I really enjoy and often comprises a key part of the support I provide to clients.


Typical monthly support packages* might include

  • Agreeing what type of contracts are appropriate and monitoring these on an ongoing basis
  • Ensuring the necessary in-house policies and certificates - eg. equality, health and safety, professional indemnity, data protection etc - are in place
  • Creating a tender ‘bible’ of regular responses and appendices
  • Making sure your business profile is loaded on the appropriate platforms
  • Editing, proofreading and providing feedback on applications produced in-house
  • Writing Request for Proposals (RFPSs), Pre-Qualification Questionnaires (PQQs), Invitation to Tenders (ITTs) and grant applications

*These tasks can also be carried out as stand-alone projects if availability permits.


What my clients say

Karen Shackleton - Director, KSA Limited
“….Stephanie has prepared core information for a high volume of formal tenders for new business opportunities. She has an eye for detail, understands the legal framework within which I operate, writes in a professional and eloquent manner and delivers to tight deadlines….Her ability to keep calm under pressure and her organisational skills prove invaluable. Her company (Chaos-to-Calm) is most aptly named!”

Dr Richard Majors - Director, Centre for Applied Emotional Literacy, Research and Leadership
“There is no question that Stephanie and Chaos to Calm provide a high quality service - quite simply, she offers the best project coordination service that I’ve ever used! She is a delight to work with, while also being very tenacious and committed. Importantly, she is capable of seeing the big picture while identifying and follow up the important minutae other people may not notice. She is very well organised in terms of establishing overall timelines, scheduling and coordinating the steps along the way and anticipating potential problems, thereby saving time and money. She has successfully helped us win two prestigious EC grants worth several hundred thousand Euro and I highly recommend her services without any reservation.”
