This free event focuses on public procurement processes, and seeks to boost the confidence of smaller organisations to tender for locally-available work across Derby (with a limited amount of spaces available, kindly note that this is aimed at local firms only).
The event will be held at:-
Venue: The Council House, Derby – in the Council Chamber on Tuesday, 16 October 2018 8:30 to 11:30
It aims to clarify the processes involved, showcase where the opportunities are to be found – including the support available – as well as to share some examples of best-practice.
In conjunction with Derby City Council, the NHS, Derby Homes, The University of Derby and Promitheia Consulting, the Chamber has organised this seminar – aimed primarily at small firms and social enterprises – operating in and around the city.
Public sector organisations have proactively taken steps to simplify the process involved, so that local firms no longer feel 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 public sector is also eager to clarify some common misconceptions about what the process entails, as well as 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 for public buyers to address.
