Introduction to Public Sector Tendering
The learning objectives for the day include: preparing your business to tender; how and where to find tender opportunities; understanding tender requirements; commercial considerations, and; how to respond to and submit a tender.
Businesses will be able to gain a greater insight into what is involved in bidding for public sector tenders, where and how they can find out about opportunities and what information they need to have in place to be able to respond quickly and effectively. The session will also look at ‘real’ tender questions and how responses were formulated and drafted.
