Job Description for Bid Manager

A bid manager oversees the process of bidding on contracts, from initial development and structuring to placing the bid to follow-up. They typically oversee a team that gathers the necessary information, performs cost analysis, and completes other tasks that are necessary to create an accurate and successful bid. Additionally, the bid manager is responsible for reporting the status of bids to executive management. An average day for a bid manager involves assessing the status of bids in progress, checking in with colleagues and department team members, reporting to direct supervisors, performing research, and refining bid data to present a polished bid.
