Competitive Dialogue or Competitive Procedure 

If you have a suspicion that not every contract should be an open or restricted procedure, that perhaps there might be a better solution to a problem or that you might need a solution devised or invented then it’s time to learn what is possible.

With technology moving so quickly and your requirements for products and services changing year on year it’s difficult to embrace the future whilst trying to future-proof against developments.

Take a few hours and learn about these two key procedures.

  • Competitive Dialogue
  • Competitive Procedure with Negotiation

These procedures can help you achieve better contracts, a cost-effective future and better market understanding.

All PASS Training is delivered in context in a non-legalistic fashion – helping you complete your procurement exercises efficiently, on time and on budget.  CPD Certified, you will gain 5 CPD hours.

Ensuring you use the correct procedure can lead to long-term cost savings, a contract which won’t become out of date so quickly and a contract which won’t lead to a costly re-run of your tender exercise.  You will

  • Discover the benefits of using each of the procedures
  • Learn how to set each of them up
  • Gain an understanding of the cost implications
  • Learn to measure the risks and rewards
  • Map out what sort of timetable you can expect to use

This course is ideal for anyone who works in the public sector running tenders.  Anyone running tenders who find they need a bigger and better solution, anyone running tenders who need a product or service that they can’t find on the marketplace and anyone managing a procurement department who believes that not everything should be open or restricted and would like to learn what is possible.

All PASS Training is delivered in context in a non-legalistic fashion – helping you complete your procurement exercises efficiently, on time and on budget.  CPD Certified, you will gain 5 CPD hours.
