Public sector organisations can make good customers. They have to employ tendering processes that are transparent, provide essential information to potential suppliers and ensure a fair chance for small businesses. They also have to be
fair and honest in the way they choose suppliers and pay promptly within agreed contract terms.
Contracts are awarded on the basis of value for money – which means getting the right balance between the price and quality of the product or service being offered. It can also involve factors such as lifetime costs and maintenance arrangements.
Each year the public sector spend over £230 billion pounds on a wide range of products and services which are all put out to tender. Are you missing out? Would you like to bid for public sector tenders but don’t know where to start?
The aim of this workshop is to explain the processes and procedures and how you can keep up to date with new opportunities.
Specific elements include;
- Are you tender ready?
- How to find opportunities
- Assessing opportunities
- Submitting a PQQ (Pre-Qualification Questionnaire) and ITT (Invitation to Tender)
- Do’s and Don’ts of bid writing
