Skills and Abilities

▪      Expertise in negotiating and when negotiating essential and timely tender contributions, managing big egos, and customizing communication methods to various parties and personalities is a must. While managing strong egos under a tight tender timeline might be difficult, it’s vital to get everyone working together as much as possible throughout the tender process.

▪      Ability to schedule comprehensively. Excel and SharePoint can all be used to help with scheduling. It’s critical to have an eye for fine details while considering the overall tender timeline and resource availability.

▪      Accountability. A tender manager must maintain accountability throughout the tendering process. This is also true for every tender contributor. It’s a good idea to spell out essential tender position tasks and expectations from away so that employees are held accountable for their contributions throughout the process.

▪      Constant multitasking ability. A tender’s success depends on communicating with many parties and working on multiple projects with competing deadlines. It’s exhausting, but a tender manager’s ability to multitask efficiently throughout the tender process is critical.

▪      The ability to delegate effectively and on time. When essential tender milestones are reached, an effective tender manager will not waste time tinkering with the front cover design. They will give this assignment to a qualified graphic designer who will be able to design more successfully and quickly. Instead of dumping work on crucial tender resources at the last minute, it’s essential to give them enough warning and clear briefs.

▪      Clear-headedness. Ability to operate accurately and quietly under pressure and in a short amount of time. This is especially critical in the days leading up to the deadline when nerves are raw, and there are high tensions. People deal with stress differently, but cursing at the computer and being disrespectful to people does not reflect well on a sensitive boss, especially if they explain their conduct on being overwhelmed.

▪      A combination of tolerance and persistence. Tenders are often stressful, and many people don’t always handle stress effectively. It’s fine to be patient to a point, but you also need to be tenacious enough to get the correct information from the right people at the right time.
