Free Course – Commissioning: Bidding for Contracts

When 21 May at 10:00am to 3:00pm
Provided by Voluntary Action Leeds

This session will help organisations bid for contracts.  It will ensure organisations know what they need to have in place in order to be eligible to apply and help them understand how to complete a successful SSQ (Standard Selection Questionnaire) and tender. A commissioner from LCC will give support and advice during the session. 

Leeds City Council, NHS CCGs and other public sector bodies are keen to contract with third sector organisations to provide services through the commissioning process which involves the assessment of a community’s needs and buying in organisations to provide services to meet those needs. 

Please note as this course is a free course if you book a place and are unable to attend for any reason (i.e. illness, or other circumstances) and cannot send another colleague in your place, please let us know as soon as possible. If you give us less than 14 days notice you will be charged a £10 non attendance fee.
