The Department of Women, Children and People with Disabilities is currently inviting the public to bid for a tender to "conduct a market research on the DWCPD Brand". Yes, really. As someone who's been following the department's "brand" closely for a while, REBECCA DAVIS thought she might as well put in a bid.
Re: Request for Proposal from prospective bidders to submit proposals on conducting a market research on the DWCPD Brand.
This feels a bit awkward, but I hereby tender my bid for your tender. (Is it really the same word for the verb and the noun? Just like the F-bomb!)
I must admit upfront that the only tenders I'm familiar with generally come attached to a bar, but I have one major thing going for me. It is no exaggeration to say that I am fascinated by what the Department of Women, Children and People with Disabilities actually stands for.
As such, to carry out this exploration on behalf of the department would be a wonderful, mysterious, almost certainly mutually mysterious journey of discovery. I beg you to bring a close consideration to my application. Mam' Lulu, grab your glasses.
