Trainer ‘s Background:

Experienced Procurement Consultants from InterTradeIreland’s ‘Go-2-Tender’ Programme, delivered throughout the   island of Ireland.

Participant Profile:

Introduction to Tendering is designed to be a practical workshop, aimed  specifically at small business owners that have never completed a tender   before. It aims to demystify the   procedures around pitching for, and ultimately winning some of the ‘below   threshold’ (i.e. below £25k) work that Local Councils and other Government   Bodies/Agencies contract out. The workshop is also suitable for new   start-ups that are looking into public procurement as a possible future   option, and for those looking to pick up some of the small contract   opportunities.

Participant Numbers:

The workshop is restricted to 14 participants to allow for group interaction and Q&A sessions.

Course Outline & Proposed Practical Outcomes:

Outline Syllabus

The workshop will cover:

  •   Specifically, proposals for work below the £5K threshold will be covered
  •   How to simply and easily respond to a ‘mini competition’ by email
  •   Documents that may be required to attach to the email proposal
  •   Finding tender opportunities – registering with the main sources of relevant tender opportunities for SMEs
  •   The eTenders family of websites
  •   Case study examples of simple success stories
