With a procurement spend of over £57bn, Local Government across England and Wales requires a vast array of goods and services, making it a good business opportunity for organisations of all sizes. LGPE 2020 offers many opportunities to learn more about the public sector as a marketplace, engage with buyers and find out more about the advice and support available to suppliers who want to bid for business.
You may have little experience of bidding or you may have lots, however, just how much do you really understand about the process and what the buyer is looking for?
Do you know that the public sector is moving towards life-cycle costing and ensuring that the specification takes consideration of issues, other than just price? Can you interpret a specification to find out exactly what the buyer is looking for or do you spend a lot of time responding but not winning?
Agenda coming soon.
