Dredging

Maximum

Achieved cooperation with the right engineering agency for a municipality, through a European tender. Result: subsequently involved in the competitive dialogue to realise the design and construct contract for a movable bridge over the Rhine.

Clean sheet

A cleaning company had no experience with tenders, but wanted to acquire the municipal council as a client. Working closely with this company, we did 80% of the work and the customer specified the bandwidth of the tender. Result: a contract was acquired for several years.

Diplomatic result

For the Department of Foreign Affairs, a European call to tender was held to realise a collaboration with the best PR agency for the celebration of 400 years of relations between New York and the Netherlands; main challenges: different jurisdictions, different markets, different requirements between the US and NL. Result: selected as the best match for the job by all stakeholders.

Exceeded expectations

A consulting firm had been waiting for the new tender of the largest ministry in terms of personnel for years already. When that came through, as a result of our input their submission for an EU tender acquired this major account for a period of four years. Objective: win at least one of the two plots. Result: winning both plots and therefore the preferred supplier for a potential turnover of millions.
