Successful tender bids can be an important source of research income for academics and their budget divisions. An effective tender bid requires the coordination of a number of inputs, within a framework that is compliant with the tender specifications.

It details supports and resources available to you, lays out the rudiments of tenders, and examines the application of these ideas through case studies.
