Major bid/no bid considerations

What goes into a bid/no bid decision?

You should make a conscious decision whether a pursuit is worth investing in

  • Think about the price of continued investment and not what you have already spent.
  • Discipline is required to “no bid” opportunities that are a bad match, not worth pursuing, or simply questionable.
  • The burden should be on justifying pursuit of the opportunity, and not on cancelling it.

Deciding whether to bid an opportunity is not just a matter of guessing how much money you could make or what your chances of winning.  Sometimes it’s worth it to bid something you know you’re going to lose money on. At other times it might make sense to walk away from a bid that would be profitable.
