How to Secure Public Sector Contracts

Awarding body Derbyshire County Council

EST. START DATE: 02/07/2015
EST. END DATE: 02/07/2015


This free event focuses on public procurement processes, and seeks to enable more small firms to feel empowered about tendering for locally-available work.

It aims to explain – and 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 the neighbouring local authorities, Derbyshire County Council, High Peak Borough Council, Business Peak District, and the University of Derby in Buxton, this seminar is aimed primarily at small firms and the voluntary/community sector operating in the Derbyshire Dales and High Peak.

Local authorities are proactively taking steps to simplify the process involved in tendering for business, so that local firms are no longer inhibited from bidding for available contracts, many of which are broken-down into smaller Lots that represent accessible opportunities for SMEs and social enterprises.

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

Date: 2 July 2015
Time: 9am to 12:30pm
Venue: Bakewell Town Hall, the Square, Bakewell, DE45 1BT
