Tenders range from the simple (not often!) to the very complex. Public sector tenders of course do have particular procedures that they follow. For inexperienced bidders, understanding the process and making sure the bid is compliant is often the focus. As your knowledge and experience grows the focus will shift from the mechanics of the tender to maximising the quality of your submissions and your win rate. You can ask us whatever burning tendering questions you have and we’ll answer them during our Q&A session in the webinar.
Our webinar will cover:

This webinar will help you gain an understanding of the public sector tendering process and practices in the UK including:
Low value tenders can prove to be a great business development tool for public sector suppliers. You may be looking to get started as a supplier and need to build up your experience, you may be looking to branch out into a new territory and build up relationships or low value tenders might just be financially suitable for the size of your organisations.
As low value tenders do not have to adhere to the full raft of procurement regulations the challenge with them is knowing where to find them and how to win them.
Join us on this 45-minute webinar which provides you with:
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:
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:
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.
Our Overview of Writing Compelling Bids webinar will help you to understand the second stage of the tendering process and how to write high scoring tenders and secure more business. Join us for this webinar for an outline of:

Bringing an experienced Bid Writer in to help form your response can provide you with the winning edge. However, when considering using a consultant, we advise you fully assess the resources available to you to first identify what skills you’re missing.
