This 43-page PDF addresses the core business of nonprofits and commercial enterprises in successful quoting and tendering.
There is an art to preparing quotes and tenders – always start with what you are offering to deliver, complete with costing, budgeting and scheduling of all related activities. Then, and only then, can you draft and refine a positive, powerful and persuasive document and ‘corporate’ image.
A successful quote or tender will include validated and sufficient detail on cost, quality, delivery and timeliness to convince the assessors of your organisation’s credibility, capability and commitment to a consistent and superior quality of goods or services.
An effective request-for-quote or tender brief will provide sufficient and accurate detail on eligibility, specifications, quality, timelines, assessment/evaluation criteria, selection procedure, confidentiality, negotiation procedures and contractual obligations.PDF $9.95 File Download

This 49-page PDF addresses both Service Delivery and Service Quality.
There are three major stages in Service Delivery:
• assessment of the target audience and their needs, interests and aspirations (ie research),
• service design – to ensure that the service design is based upon the research stage, and
• service delivery – to ensure that the services delivered are consistent with the service design.
There are three basic components in Continuous Quality Improvement for the Service-provider:
*to increase ‘our’ knowledge and understanding of service-user expectations and requirements,
*to improve the design, so that the mix of features afforded by ‘our’ programs and services more closely match service-user expectations and requirements, and
*to improve ‘our’ ability to provide programs and services which consistently conform more closely to the design.
