  • Finding and Winning Low Value Tenders

    Low value tenders can prove to be a great business development tool for public sector suppliers.

This webinar will provide you with:

    • An explanation of how to access them
    • An outline of what rules and regulations govern low value tenders

  • Social Value in Tenders

    Social Value has been part of procurement legislation since 2013 yet it is just starting to filter down into tender documents on a regular basis - sometimes accounting for up to 20% of the total evaluation. But what is it? How is it appearing the tender documents? And, more importantly, how can you prepare for it? If you are totally in the dark or have answered some social value questions but would like a firmer understanding of the topic then join us on this 45 minute webinar which will provide you with:

    • A high level overview of the Social Value Act 2012
    • An explanation of how it is being implemented in the public sector

  • Frameworks and Dynamic Purchasing Systems

    The use of frameworks and dynamic purchasing systems (DPS) is on the rise. They cut through a significant amount of work for procurement teams and simplify the tendering process for suppliers. However, a lot of suppliers are not sure what a framework or DPS is, how they operate and what work needs to be done once you are on them. Our 45 minute webinar provides:

    • A description of what a framework is and how it operates
    • A description of a DPS and how it differs from a framework
    • Examples of ‘call-off’ mini competitions from frameworks and DPSs
    • An overview of how to write great bid responses

  • Business Development for Tenders

    Do you want to get ahead of the game and feel like you have more control over your tendering activities rather than fire-fighting all the time? You are not alone! The majority of suppliers we speak to are in the rut of reactive tendering, responding to contract notices as and when they appear and hoping for the best. This will garner some success but the ultimate aim for any bid writer or bid team is so get ahead of the curve and be able to tender proactively – knowing in advance when a bid is due out and doing essential business development work before it goes to tender.
