This free event focuses on public procurement processes, and seeks to boost the confidence of smaller organisations to tender for locally-available work across North Derbyshire.
(with a limited amount of spaces available, kindly note that this is aimed at local firms only)

It aims to clarify the processes involved, showcase where the opportunities are to be found - including the support available - as well as to share some examples of best-practice.

In conjunction with Derbyshire County Council, the NHS, and Promitheia Consulting, the Chamber has organised this seminar - aimed primarily at small firms and the voluntary/community sector - operating around the county.

Public sector organisations have proactively taken steps to simplify the process involved, so that local firms no longer feel inhibited from pitching for available contracts, many of which are broken down into smaller components that represent lucrative and accessible opportunities for SMEs and social enterprises.

In a bid to keep their expenditure local, the public sector is eager to clarify some common misconceptions about what the process entails, and to welcome more tenders to help raise quality standards and promote best-value.

This seminar offers an informal opportunity to raise any questions (or concerns) about existing processes, and provides suppliers with an opportunity to ask questions for public buyers to address.

There will also be information about registering with the county's Source Derbyshire portal, and the support that the Chamber is able to provide.

Owing to capacity restrictions, preference will be given to organisations based within North Derbyshire - a maximum of TWO bookings per organisation.
