How to Secure Public Contracts: North Derbyshire – 27th September 2016
Awarding body Derbyshire County Council

EST. START DATE: 27/09/2016
EST. END DATE: 27/09/2016


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 North Derbyshire.

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 Derbyshire County Council, the East Midlands Chamber has organised this seminar – aimed primarily at small firms and the voluntary/community sector operating in the area.

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.

There will also be information about registering with the county’s Source Derbyshire portal.

Preference will be given to North Derbyshire organisations – maximum of TWO bookings per organisation
