Tender Writing & Bid Management

Stones Throw directors Kris McCue and Kyleigh Hindson have an extensive and successful track record in developing, writing and managing winning tenders and bids in relation to government and private sector business.

Over the past 10 years Stones Throw has secured over $25 million in funding and investment for organisations in the tourism, community and employment and training sectors with a success rate of 95%.

Stones Throw will work with you to gain a detailed understanding of your business operations, goals and environment. Depending on the scope of work required, Stones Throw can provide:

  • End to end tender and bid development, drafting and submission either independently or with your internal tender or bid team;
  • Editing and compliance checking;
  • Service and financial modelling;
  • Market research;
  • Investment & risk analysis;
  • Identifying and brokering informal or formal joint ventures with other businesses or organisations that will strengthen and add mutual value to a tender bid.

Service Fees

The outcomes of tenders and bids can never be guaranteed. We like to have "skin in the game" which means Stones Throw will work with you to develop a fee structure that that builds in a success component and spreads the risk of your investment.
