So, you want to improve your chances of winning public sector tenders; training is a good place to start. There are courses available to businesses that need guidance throughout any stage of the procurement process.
Introduction to Procurement
New to public procurement? PASS Procurement offers an “Introduction to Public Procurement” course. This is a great place to start if you want to learn what you need to have in place to submit tenders.
This intensive one-day course is an excellent choice for suppliers seeking a greater understanding of what the public sector can offer their business and wanting to know what they will need to put their best tender submission forward.
This course outlines many of the rules around public procurement as well as the timescales and thresholds that must be followed.
Preparing Perfect Tenders
If you have mastered the art of finding tender opportunities, then it is time to start “Preparing Perfect Tenders”.
This course is an excellent choice for those who want to learn how to make their bids better. If you are already bidding for public sector contracts, but are not yet winning, “Preparing Perfect Tenders” will help you to break down the tender specification.
A PASS Procurement consultant will help you to find out exactly what the buyer is looking for so that you are well prepared for the next opportunity that comes around.
Complying with the Standard Selection Questionnaire
Getting the Standard Selection Questionnaire right the first time is vital when it comes to winning public sector tenders.
This course is dedicated to helping suppliers learn what the buying authority you want to work with is looking for in a supplier – become your company’s in-house expert on bidding for public sector contracts.
Bid support is another service offered by the Procurement Advice and Support Service (PASS). Whether you’re looking for advice during a tender exercise or an external expert to look through your processes, PASS can help.
