Tender Response to provide free Carbon Reduction Plan baseline service to clients

From 1 April 2024, Crown Commercial Services are including an option contract schedule for suppliers as part of their procurement process. The schedule refers to carbon reduction initiatives, carbon reduction plans and environmental and sustainability standards.

The carbon reduction contract schedule is optional and can be added in by the public sector procurer and their procurement department.

A Berkshire-based tender and bid writing specialist is offering clients a free baseline exercise to help them understand the steps they need to take to comply with the new contract schedule.

Director of Tender Response, Vicky Poole said:

“We know that most government entities are struggling to achieve their Carbon Zero target date, so we expect that most procurements will include this new schedule moving forward. So, for any organisation looking to bid for government contracts, a carbon reduction plan is going to be essential.

“Our goal at Tender Response is to take the hassle out of the tender process and so we’re pleased to be able to offer a free consultation for anyone who wants to complete a baseline carbon reduction plan exercise.”

What our clients say about us

As a kind of small, medium business, tenders are very time consuming, can be quite arduous, potentially complex, and she cut through it all, making it very clear, concise, articulate, and helped us with our final submission in terms of writing the final draft, which basically allowed us to focus on selling our business, our services and USPs and the commercials into the template that was required and necessary for the project in hand. And happily to say, sort of 10 days later, our first using of Vicky's services, we won that tender.
