Bidding

Are you currently preparing for, or thinking about a CRC or a CRC-P bid in the current or a future round?  Are you also looking for partners?  If so, the CRC Association wants to know.

Bidding for a CRC or a CRC-P is a very competitive process. Many bids do not make themselves aware to the CRC Association. By letting us know about your CRC or CRC-P bid we can help you make the connections and introduce you to the people you should be talking to.

The bids will be advertised in the fortnightly CRC Association newsletter, which goes out to 10,000 email addresses.

Let us know about your bid

You should also consider joining the CRC Association as a member. The CRC Association will help guide you with your bid and when bid time comes around, we will help you with a mock interview and provide feedback.

Other benefits of membership include: priority access to the support and expertise of CRCA staff; access to specials on flights and accommodation; Vitae’s RDF Planner; and access to the CRC Association members-only website.
