Bite Sized Bid Management Level 1: Demystifying Public Procurement
Location: Via webinar
Time: 09:30 – 11:30
The UK Government aims to transform public procurement to allow for innovative suppliers to be more easily identifiable within public procurement exercises, and revolutionise how it spends over £300bn in contracts.
Those wishing to supply the public sector, however, are still up against stiff competition from those who understand how to bid successfully for tenders without always necessarily being the best supplier for the job.
This 2 hour workshop discusses the drivers behind public procurement in addition to the processes that public sector follow to give attendees a better idea of what to expect from tender exercises.
Also included are the regulatory environment, why we see certain common questions included in tenders and navigating through the selection stages of a tender exercise.
These workshops have been developed and delivered by procurement and bid professionals for over a decade, helping suppliers to cut through the jargon, and unravel the unnecessary complexity of public procurement process, allowing you, as a supplier, to stop your competitors from winning unopposed.
The material within will help you sell the benefits of your organisation and give you the tools for understanding how to approach difficult tender questions, to attract high scores.
Our experienced presenters share depth knowledge of successfully tendering for contracts, obtained through working in public and private sector procurement and are also experienced in managing the tender process and in producing successful tender responses for other clients.
