Don't just take our word for it, here is just some of the feedback from the broad range of clients we have worked with across a variety of industry sectors.


All questions were fully answered and achieved very high scores. The overall score for this question and answer section was the highest of all bidders.

Despite the significant difference between your score and the highest score for the pricing model, you actually achieved the second highest mark, leaving you in a very strong position for the final interview stage.

Interview – As the only bidder to provide a written presentation at interview stage, you immediately demonstrated a level of professionalism over and above fellow bidders.

The document served to give greater insight into your company and the services that you deliver within the East Midlands. The ‘meeting’ was very productive, with good interaction between all attendees. The suggestions put forward demonstrated a commitment to achieving a positive outcome for all engaged in the framework.

Overall, the quality of submissions both for the PQQ stage and Stage 2 coupled with an excellent interview left very little potential for criticism, and assured you of a place on the framework.”
