Why Consider This Programme...
The value of the public procurement market in the UK and Ireland is-
- £11bn in Scotland
- Close to £11bn on the Island of Ireland too
- And over £260bn in England & Wales
This presents a major market opportunity for companies who want to grow their business.
Private sector supply chains – where tendering is prevalent – also present major opportunities on these islands – in construction, water, energy, health, transport, marine, aviation/aerospace….. and many other supply chains.
These sectors are all being primed for major investment – by Governments and major corporates in Ireland and across all regions of the UK.
Can SME’s access these opportunities?
Data now confirms that SME’s win 80% of public tenders in the UK and Ireland. Are you in that 80% If not you are missing a real opportunity!
Prefer to sell to local private sector supply chains? We can support you too through this programme.
Should you wish to sell direct or get involved via the supply chains of the larger companies, who need high-quality suppliers to tender for work packages – THEN THIS PROGRAMME IS FOR YOU.
If you want to improve your performance (and grow your business) in tendered sectors of the market in the UK and Ireland – the programme will help you to:
• Identify the right target sectors/companies, or public sector bodies to bid into
• Identify sources of information on bid pipelines, and live bid events;
• Make the right decisions, about what bids to pursue, and which to leave well alone;
• Improve your bid content;
• And ultimately improve bid outcomes.
