Bid & Tender Management


ICT procurement represents around 15% of all Central Government procurement spend.

Encompass has worked with a range of Value Added Resellers (VARs), Large Systems Integrators and Vendors/OEMs to develop tender responses to significant procurement processes, this includes a number of Consortium Frameworks including CCS and CPC.


We have multiple funding options available for this unit. Please call 01482 222 463 for more details.

What we do

Public Sector Organisations, in particular, use a number of different routes to market in order to purchase commoditised products and services. This includes:

  • Consortium Purchasing Frameworks – Crown Commercial Service (CCS), Crescent Purchasing Consortium (CPC) and Eastern Shires Purchasing Organisation (ESPO)
  • Local Authority and NHS Framework Agreements
  • Spot Purchasing
  • Large end-to-end processes for more complex procurements i.e. Information Assurance and Managed Services.

How we help

We understand the competitive nature of ICT Procurements and in particular commoditised hardware and software based competitions.

Often there is a misconception that only the top VARs with the best pricing, or the supplier who gets the Deal Reg will be awarded the contract.

This isn’t always the case, especially where a tender is evaluated based on the Most Economically Advantageous Tender (MEAT), 30% of which the total points available may be down to added value, for example, a smaller more specialist supplier maybe able to demonstrate greater competence and value for money.

This is where Encompass has had most success working with mid-market providers who specialize in a particular solution or service.

Our bid team are heavily experienced in submitting successful tenders for ICT hardware, software and solutions. We have subject matter experts who really understand the sector.

Our advisors are here to help.

What They Say About Us…

The Workshops for ICT resellers cover key topics including and understand public sector procurement, managing pre procurement engagement, finding opportunities, gaining an understanding of the legislation for public sector tendering.
