The coalition government has stated that SMEs should win a minimum of 25% of all public sector contracts by 2013
There are over 4000 UK public sector bodies including 500+ Councils, Utility Companies (water, gas, and electricity), NHS and Primary Care trust. These organisations are all required under EU legislation to openly advertise procurement of products and services via a formal tender process
All UK companies have an equal opportunity to tender when responding to public sector tenders. In 2013 more than 75,000 UK tenders worth over £220 Billion have been published
Can you and your business afford to ignore tendering any longer?
We have successfully engaged several new clients in the civils, lighting and environmental sectors and have been successful in many bids for them. Of course this year we want to expand our client base and partner new clients in new industries to help them bid successfully. We have found our approach to exclusivity to one client per sector to be a successful one offering confidence that there is no conflict of interest. Many of our customers have come over to us because they have had negative experiences of having their inboxes bombarded with possible opportunities. Our clients understand and appreciate that we will only forward opportunities we feel they have a strong chance of winning. Of course there is some science behind this and our risk and opportunity analysis and time taken to understand our clients commercial position means we can leave our clients to run their businesses whilst we look for the most suitable opportunities. We are encouraging people to contact us for an initial no obligation “health check” to provide an insight to the opportunities available in their sector/industry. Please approach us in 2014 and let us help you increase your order book.
