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 upcoming webinar – How Tenders Work, and Deciding Whether to Bid.

In this webinar will cover:

  • The most common types of public sector tender processes
  • How tenders are published and how to access
  • Reviewing and understanding tenders and their scoring
  • Evaluating your suitability to bid and making your bid decision
