“We have received outstanding support from P4P in helping us to secure a contract with Morrison Construction where we will be delivering corporate and industrial catering across Scotland. Procurement is a hard process to understand but working with P4P made it easy for us.”

“As a small, Third Sector Organisation, who had never had to tender for services before, the whole tendering process was extremely daunting for us….. We were put in touch with p4p and Claire helped reassure and guide us through the whole procedure from start to finish, which was invaluable for us…..we would not have been able to submit the tender on time without it……

The training day I attended was extremely useful. It has made the tendering process much simpler to follow. Claire and the team explained the process in clear and simple terms as well as providing some top tips. We will certainly be using their service again”.

“I am so grateful to P4P for the support they have provided.  I first met Neil about a year ago and I would have given up a long time back were it not for his skill and expertise, helping me enter the world of tendering. Without hesitation I would encourage anyone to contact the team.  I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.”

“As a small 3rd sector provided tendering is a daunting process.  I’m thankful I was put in touch with P4P which made the whole process from start to finish less daunting.  Our Coordinator  – Neil Young – was really patient, professional and a great support. Without hesitation we will certainly use their service again.”

“P4P and Claire from the team were excellent, made the process much simpler and without their help the submission would never have taken place. Our submission was successful and this in turn benefits hundreds of young people who need our help.”

Having help from the P4P project saved me a lot of time, effort and stress, finding out how the tendering process worked. I am sure it also enabled me to concentrate upon content rather than process, and thus write a better quality of bid.

Duncan Leece
Boyndie Trust

P4P was able to provide advice and direction in both facilitating the development of the partnership and readying us for our tender application…He was also able to talk us through a couple of P4P resources – the collaboration toolkit and the bid library

Alan Keane
Eastern Perthshire Youth Alliance

P4P provided guidance on tendering, market research around procurement opportunities and creation of our bid library. The help we received was invaluable and we are now in a much stronger position to seek procurement opportunities.

Scott Hay
Potential in Me

The help provided by Neil at P4P really made the process easier to go through… I’d certainly seek their support if we have to tender again.

Juliet Sheriff
Milltown Community

P4P allowed us to be tender-ready ahead of time of publication. This allowed us to focus on writing the actual tender when it was published…I cannot recommend them highly enough.
