Capability Statements

A Capability Statement has become a vital tool for any business wanting to work for government departments or large corporations. This is an excellent marketing tool for all businesses. Kelso Consulting Australia has the experience in writing quality Capability Statements.

A Capability Statement provides information about your business. It explains your Who, What, Where, Why, How, and When.

Every business should have a minimum of two statements. The first being a comprehensive document of about 15-20 pages.  Every Tender submission or Expression of Interest should include this document.

It's an excellent idea to add photos of products or services as well as graphs or charts to show what you can do and how you do it.

The second document is a concise, summarised two-page document. This is ideal for the smaller customers and great to include as a PDF with any emailed quote.

What to Include in the Capability Statement?

There are plenty of templates available on the Internet for Capability Statements. If you choose to use a downloadable template, make sure that you're using an appropriate industry template from Australia. Using the wrong template could mean that you're missing critical information in your document. A Capability Statement reflects directly on your business. It must be accurate, truthful and professional.
