Milking Quality Management Systems for PQQs & Tenders 
(There are similar seminars for environmental, energy & H&S management systems)


Most organisations that respond to PQQs and tenders have ISO 9001. Most of those that do not have ISO 9001 have many arrangements to meet customer requirements.) Typically, organisations put a lot of work and effort into:

  • Their PQQ and tender responses.

  • Managing their quality management system.



The typical organisation:

  • Draws upon ISO 9001 elements when answering PQQs and tenders.

  • May have quality professionals contributing to PQQ and tender answers.



Most organisations could benefit from:

  • Setting up their quality management systems to churn out evidence for PQQs & tenders.

  • Increasing the awareness of bid writers and bid managers of how quality management systems (QMSs) can be used to answer PQQ and tender questions.

  •  Increasing the involvement of bid writers / managers in their QMSs.

  • Increasing awareness of quality professionals of how QMSs can be used to produce evidence.
