Bid Writing Services

Bid Writing Service

We wish to extend our support to local charities, constituted organisations and social enterprises by introducing our bid writing services.

What will it cost?

The Hero Project CIC will offer the following options:

Option 1

For groups with an income of under £200,000 pa minimum bid size £1,000

  • We offer a fixed price contract at a daily rate of £400 per day where 50% of the price is payable in advance as a non-returnable deposit and a further 50% is payable upon submission

Example for £20,000 bid – estimated 2 days at £400 per day = total cost £800

50% = £400 deposit payable on appointment

50% = £400 balance to pay on submission of completed bid

Option 2

For groups with an income of over £200,000 pa minimum bid size of £5,000

  • We offer a fixed price contract at a daily rate of £500 per day where 50% of the price is payable in advance as a non-returnable deposit and a further 50% is payable upon submission

Example for £50,000 bid – estimated 3 days at £500 per day = total cost £1500

50% = £750 deposit payable on appointment

50% = £750 balance to pay on submission of completed bid

Option 3

For groups with an income of over £200,000 pa minimum bid size of £5,000

  • We can offer a fixed fee at 2% of the value of the bid where 10% of the fee is paid in advance as a non-returnable deposit and the remainder is payable upon a ‘No win No fee basis’

Example for £300,000 bid @ 2% fee = £6,000

20% payable in advance as deposit = 1,200

Balance to be paid £4,800 upon winning the bid
