Tender Writing

Taking the stress out of tender preparation and

delivering high standard proposals for our clients.

When it comes to tender development, particularly in the Community Services space, we offer a unique set of skills and experiences. Prior to establishing Anna Dixon Consulting, Anna worked extensively in procurement and contract management in a State Government role, including the management of the state of Western Australia’s largest community services contract. She also managed the procurement of a wide range of high-value professional services through tender and RFQ. Anna’s practical experience is complemented by a Diploma of Government (Procurement and Contract Management).

Anna’s expertise, combined with the rest of our team’s experience in working with business, non-profits and local government on procurement, tender preparation and grant writing, means you know that you’re working with professionals who can create a compelling case for support.

Anna and the team have prepared winning tenders for non-profits (including those tendering for services to be delivered under the DCSP Policy framework), as well as small businesses tendering for service-based projects ranging from $250k through to $3m. We have also developed comprehensive business cases and funding strategies for a range of non-profits and local governments for projects ranging from $1m through to $13m.

We offer a range of options, tailored to the tender requirements and your organisation’s capacity. Our services include:

  • Advisory Service – one-off consultation via video call to help you get on track
  • Magic Wand Service – we’ll do the final polish of your proposal and make any suggestions to tighten up your offer.
  • Wordsmith Pack – you do the pre-planning and initial draft, we’ll craft your proposal.
  • Complete Pack – we’ll meet with you (virtually or at your premises) to plan out your offer, then we’ll develop your proposal ready for approval and submission.

With Anna Dixon Consulting, you get access to our team’s unique blend of creativity and analytical skills, teamed with our flair for writing that gives written proposals the edge.

If you’re in government and need help with a procurement (from advice through to implementation), we can also assist.

Anna provided our Community Resource Centre with a professional tender development service. She worked at a level that was understandable to all the staff and committee and she was extremely approachable and listened to us. The service was great value and a sound investment.

I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Anna for many years and more recently enlisted her services to assist Sparrowly Group with a major tender that represented a huge opportunity for us. Her advice was practical and pragmatic, and having her expert eye to finesse our submission made a substantial contribution to us winning! I loved working with Anna and look forward to our next project together.

Anna worked with us on a complex procurement process with very tight timelines. Anna was a pleasure to work with – personable and approachable, she understood the time constraints and organisational pressures, offering practical solutions to the issues.

The feedback from our regional team was so positive – her professional approach and procurement knowledge saw her effectively support both our staff and external providers through the process.

Anna was an effective communicator, keeping us across the progress of her tasks in the project while working independently to implement them effectively. Engaging Anna proved to be a cost-effective way to take the pressure off us during this complex process. I’d absolutely recommend Anna to anyone looking for support in a procurement. To be able to hand a project over and be confident it was going to be done well and within timeframes is very reassuring and allowed me to use my time to best effect.
