Scottish Government remains committed to supporting local businesses across Scotland, working collaboratively with industry to create an economy that is fair and prosperous for all.
With a procurement spend of over £11bn, Scotland’s public sector requires a vast array of goods and services, making it a good business opportunity for organisations of all sizes. Procurex Scotland 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.
Bid Support Zone
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?
The sessions in the Bid Support Zone will look at key issues including How the Procurement Procedures are Used, Tips to Improve your Bid and The Importance of Buyer Engagement. View the agenda below and book your place at the leading public procurement event in Scotland.
