Introduction to Tendering Workshop - Limerick - 26th October

26 Oct 2017

09:30AM - 01:00PM

Woodlands House Hotel, Adare

£/€ Cost €20

Go2Tender - Introduction to Tendering is designed to be a practical workshop, aimed specifically at small business owners that have never completed a tender before.

It aims to demystify the procedures around pitching for, and ultimately winning some of the ‘below threshold’ (i.e. below €25k) work that Local Authorities and other Government Bodies/Agencies contract out.

The workshop is also suitable for new start-ups that are looking into public procurement as a possible future option, and for those looking to pick up some of the very small contracts (e.g. work <€500).

Outline Syllabus

The workshop will cover:

  • Advice on Proposal Writing (‘proposals’ as opposed to lengthy ‘tenders’)
  • Responding to ‘below threshold’ work (i.e. below €30k) required by NI public bodies
  • Specifically, proposals for work below the €5K threshold will be covered
  • How to simply and easily respond to a ‘mini competition’ by email
  • Documents that may be required to attach to the email proposal
  • Finding tender opportunities – registering with the main sources of relevant tender opportunities for SMEs
  • The eTenders family of websites 
  • Case study examples of simple success stories
