The Bid Manager is responsible for managing bids that have a single country scope and medium complexity (complexity may vary from country to country and has therefore not been defined in detail here). Elements that contribute to bid complexity include geographic scope (number of sites, location of sites), solution scope (number of technologies, lines of business), service scope (number of services, SLAs) and commercial complexity (contractual terms and conditions, pricing models, subcontractors).
