TENDERING & PROCUREMENT
Interested in tendering for public sector contracts but don’t know a PQQ from an ITT?
Over £4 billion pounds is spent by the public sector purse in Wales each year ‑ and much of this spend needs to be tendered for. Yet currently, only 35% of this is spent with Businesses based in Wales.
There may be opportunities for your business to provide goods, works or services to the public sector, either through a direct contract or by becoming a sub-contractor. The main benefits of supplying to public sector customers are that they:
- are long-standing and stable
- will usually pay you promptly
- decide which supplier to use on a fair and open basis
- undertake procurement in accordance with publicly available regulations
