Outline bid procedure • Register interest | attend info days • Attend bid writing / case-study workshops • Talk to the people with the money • Read sample bids / evaluation procedure • Allocate resources | set timetable • Prepare project outline | lobby for support • Prepare bid according to rules • Meet the deadline • If you fail - find out why you failed

  9. Bid Support Preparation • CV’s - (Do you know what experiences your staff have?) • Financial statements • Track record - staff & establishment • Remember all bids small or large are a line on your record • Letters of co-operation from partners • Legal agreements (Corporates struggle) • General letters of reference
