“Nicola Dibb Associates helped me with pre-qualification submissions for two important framework opportunities. The service provided by Nicola and her design team was excellent, starting with a useful meeting where Nicola promoted ideas which without doubt enhanced the quality of the documents in terms of content and design, leading us to successfully qualify for the invitation to tender on both. I would definitely recommended NDA to anyone looking to improve the quality of their submissions.”
“We appointed Nicola and her team to support Brenwards on a must-win bid for a Housing asset management Framework. They showed creative flair in designing us an eye catching document. Nicola’s sector expertise, advice and professional writing ensured we submitted a compelling bid which I have no doubt helped us enormously in securing the repairs and maintenance contract for another 10 years.”
“Nicola helped us at short notice with a crucial ITT for a framework that CS2 we very keen to be appointed on. Nicola provided invaluable support around design of the document and defining CS2’s capability around the services we wanted to provide. We were successful in being appointed to this frameworks and cant thank Nicola enough.”

They have an excellent can-do attitude and I am delighted to have been appointed on two HA sales agent Frameworks as a result of the support NDA was able to offer my business”
“Once again, NDA were truly outstanding from start to finish on our latest projects. From preparing our latest bid document to the designing our new brochure, they far exceeded our expectations and for the first time in 6 years, we have a brochure we can be proud of.
