  • About the programme

    Are you getting your share of public and private procurement?

    Did you know that over £280 billion is invested through public procurement each year in the UK? Huge opportunities also exist in the private sector in areas including aerospace, aviation, construction, energy, health, marine and transport.

    SMEs win 80 per cent of public tenders in the UK and Ireland. Is your company benefitting?

    If you want to improve your tendering and procurement, our free support programme will help you to:

    • identify sources of information on bid pipelines, and live bid events
    • make the right decisions about which bids to pursue
    • improve your bid content; and ultimately, your bid outcomes

    We’re offering eligible Belfast based businesses and social enterprises support to improve your tendering and procurement performance.

    You’ll develop your skills through a series of tailored workshops, our experienced bid specialists will provide mentoring – and you’ll benefit from hands on support on live tenders.
