Go-2-Tender Programme

The Go-2-Tender Programme aims to give SMEs across the island of Ireland the confidence, skills and knowledge to successfully compete for Public Sector tenders in their own jurisdiction and on a cross-border basis. 

The Programme consists of 2 days' training by experienced bid specialists with an initial ½ day of tailored one-to-one mentoring available to each participating company.  Eligible companies can also apply for up to a further 2 days of additional mentoring support from an experienced consultant.

Go-2-Tender is an InterTradeIreland programme which has been developed to give SMEs the confidence, knowledge and practical skills to tender successfully for public sector contracts in their own jurisdiction and on a cross-border basis.
