Who we are

Jason Cooney

Senior bid consultant

Jason has a strong track record in successfully strategising,managing and executing numerous tenders and bids for legal and other professional services firms.

His bid management experience is extensive, as is his ability to clearly communicate complex solutions simply. A high win rate stems from his innovative and client-focused presentation style that ensures his tenders and bids are well received by all procurement panel members.

Recent successes for law and other professional firms include winning bids for clients to:

  • New Zealand All of Government
  • NSW All of Government Legal Panel
  • Commonwealth Government Legal Services Multi-Use List
  • Chubb Security Holdings
  • Australia Post
  • Qantas
  • Transport for NSW
  • Mitsui Sumitomo.

Jason adopts a no-fuss, direct, and pragmatic approach in designing, writing and project managing tenders and bids. Jason’s skillset extends to drafting capability statements, events and other marketing collateral.

Clients and colleagues describe Jason’s approach to bid management and delivery as “confident and innovative”, “very detailed, he knows what he’s doing” and “fresh; challenges the norm and very efficient”.

He has equipped firms with necessary tools and knowledge to implement best practice procedures to support bid processes and to integrate these measures into day-to-day marketing and BD operations.  Jason has also developed and delivered customised education and training programs to firms across the eastern seaboard looking to improve their bid processes and capabilities and increase their tender win rates.

When he’s not working with JMA, Jason is the Director of The Tender Team, a bid consultancy established in 2014 focussed on security, building, construction & engineering and mining sectors.

Jason adds significant value to JMA by drawing on insights and techniques acquired through his work in non-legal sectors.

He has a Bachelor of Commerce from the University of Technology, Sydney and a Master of Business Administration from the University of New South Wales.

Prior to joining forces with JMA and launching The Tender Team Jason’s early career roles included business development positions with law and engineering firms along with a stint with the Greek Air force.
