What makes a Security Tenders writing effective?

Writing security tenders requires either a professional who has worked in the security industry and innately understands the sector, or a professional tender writer who has experience working on security tenders. Security tenders are common as nearly all public and private sector businesses commission security services. Security tenders are now more important than ever with the evolving variety of threats including terrorism, digital access, and identity fraud. When reviewing security tenders, companies now seek suppliers who are capable of not only responding to any issues that arise on a daily basis, but assisting them in foreseeing and acting on any future challenges.

There are a multitude of areas that may need to be covered such as guarding in high risk environments, IT security and cybersecurity, or CCTV security and each area of security comes with its own set of rules and regulations. Security tenders need to demonstrate an understanding of the balance of risk control with cost. This is an integral part of all security tenders. Security tenders must demonstrate that the security company is able to deliver a cost effective yet safe and responsive resource for any incident. This can sometimes be a difficult balancing act when writing security tenders and requires a solid understanding of the company’s capabilities and funding.
