Description

This free event focuses on public procurement processes, and seeks to enable more small organisations to feel empowered about tendering for locally-available work across the areas of Ripley, Belper, Heanor, and Alfreton.

It aims to clarify the process involved, as well as to showcase where the opportunities are to be found – including the support available – and to share some examples of best-practice.

In conjunction with hosts Futures Housing icon(who manage Amber Valley’s housing stock), Derbyshire County Council icon, Amber Valley Council icon, Derbyshire Constabulary, and Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Service icon, the Chamber has organised this seminar – aimed primarily at small firms and the voluntary/community sector operating in these areas.

Public sector organisations are proactively taking steps to simplify the process involved, so that local firms are no longer inhibited from pitching for available contracts, many of which are broken down into smaller components that represent lucrative and accessible opportunities for SMEs and social enterprises.

In a bid to keep their expenditure local, the local authorities are eager to clarify some common misconceptions about what the process entails, and to welcome more tenders to help raise quality standards and promote best-value.

This seminar offers an informal opportunity to raise any questions (or concerns) about existing processes, and provides suppliers with an opportunity to ask questions (in advance of the meeting) for public buyers to address.

NOTE
Preference will be given to Amber Valley organisations – maximum of TWO bookings per organisation
