ORAIDC has teamed up with PASS Training to deliver workshops to help companies tender for big Public Sector Contracts
Why you should consider bidding for public sector contracts.
Government has repeatedly expressed its belief that SMEs “have a vital role to play in the growth of the UK economy” and “can offer more innovative and imaginative, more flexible and more cost effective products and services.” Successive announcements of measures and initiatives demonstrate progress towards the Government’s objective to: 1) remove unnecessary obstacles that make government procurement difficult for SMEs; 2) make the system more competitive between suppliers; and 3) provide new business opportunities for SMEs (Morrison, 2015) NHS Supply Chain Parliamentary brief – Summer 2015.
The public sector requires a massive range of goods, works and services to keep it moving. Public sector contracts offer stability as these services always need to be delivered.
Transparency in the public sector is mandatory, you‘ll be treated fairly and professionally and Public Sector organisations are mandated to pay accounts within 30 days, so by winning contracts you are giving your company a solid base to plan growth.
The public sector can offer bigger contracts than the private sector which means more revenue for your business. And fair competition in the market means your business has a great chance of being in the running.
If you are a business owner, manager, development manager or have a role where you contribute to the tender process this course will give you all the tools to weigh the risk and reward ratio of bidding for public sector contracts.
