REDCAR & CLEVELAND BOROUGH COUNCIL

PROCUREMENT SURGERY

Wednesday 21 February 2018

Innovation Centre, Kirkleatham Business Park, Redcar, TS10 5SH

About the surgeries

Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council’s Procurement Surgeries provide companies based in the Borough with a free one-to-one support session from a professional in either public or private sector procurement. With the help of funding from MGT Teesside, the Council’s Business Growth Team is organising these surgeries to help local companies improve their chances of success in tendering and hopefully win a greater percentage of contract opportunities in this region and beyond.

You can use your appointment to get advice on any aspect of public or private sector tendering, including:

  • Identifying opportunities
  • Deciding when to bid and when not to
  • Finding ways of progressing from providing quotations to completing tenders
  • Understanding the tender process and how it varies between public or private sector
  • How to address specific feedback on previously submitted tenders
  • Relationship building and supply chain potential for your business
  • Understanding social value or added value requirements and how your business can deliver these.

Who should attend?

We welcome Redcar & Cleveland based companies who:

  • are just thinking about tendering as a way to grow their businesses
  • already tender but have specific questions on a current bid
  • have specific questions on new sector(s) they wish to target.

The surgeries cater for organisations ranging from those just starting to look at tendering to businesses with specific questions on a current bid. This is a great opportunity for you to gain insight, practical skills and tips from experts in the field.

NOTE: Spaces are limited. Bookings for slots with Surgery Leads will be on the basis of 1st come 1st served .

About the surgery leads

The appointments will be led by:

  • Garry Stone and Melanie Carr of B2B North - Garry has helped the region secure tens of millions of pounds in contract wins across every sector. He and Mel have worked with every type and size of organisation, including mentoring and supporting winning bids from organisations without the size or capability to afford their own bid writing team.

  • Michelle Gray of Redcar & Cleveland Council’s Procurement Team - Michelle regularly provides advice to local businesses on how to tender with the public sector.

Next step

The surgeries may be followed up with further support, depending on need.

If you have any questions, please speak to the Business Growth Team on 01642 444366 or email business.growth@redcar-cleveland.gov.uk
