Our Commissioner's Guide to Tendering is a four hour seminar that introduces the 7 essential steps in creating compelling tenders for public sector procurement exercises.

These are consistent principles for tendering regardless of your specific area of expertise.

Rather than spend ages walking you through the monotony of the procurement cycle, our seminar focuses on the 7 key aspects to consider when tender writing.

These include:

1. Understanding the language - PQQ, RFI, ITQ, ITT, RFT, DPS. Confusing right? We clarify what the hell they are on about.

2. To bid or not to bid? - Developing a bid/no bid checklist for your organisation.

3. Understanding specifications - What do they want to buy?

4. Good PQQ's & Great ITT's - Tips on what the commissioner is looking for and where your time is best spent.

5. Check and challenge - Three essential steps before you hit the submit button.

6. The interview - The do's and don'ts when you get to stage 2.

7. Award - Whether you win or not, you are not done yet. We cover all this in four hours. However, we know that sometimes what participants are actually looking for is someone with an independent eye to review what they have written. So we build in the opportunity after the training to reserve a 40 minute slot with one of our tender experts, so that we can give you some basic pointers on your tender and the confidence to go away and put our training into practice.

This is an optional service and there is an additional fee (£50) for our experts to look through your tender and provide you with some tips and pointers. There will also be a limited number of appointment slots per training session, which will be offered on a first come first served basis.

Description

Our Commissioning and Procurement training aims to provide those who are brand new to commissioning and procurement with an overview of the essential skills you need to design and implement purchasing activities for:

  • Services - such as professional services (HR, ICT, Legal etc) or operational services like marketing or fulfilment.
  • Goods - such as IT equipment, office supplies and specialist equipment.
  • Works - such as building contractors and capital projects.

The course covers aspects of commissioning and procurement such as:

  • To procure or not to procure - We help you to understand the step by step process you need to go through to make a decision about which form of purchasing is best to meet your requirements.
  • Developing your evidence base and rationale — We provide an understanding about how to develop your procurement specification.
  • Understanding your markets — Do you know what the market looks like for the services, goods or works you want to purchase? We show you how to understand your market.
  • Compliant procurement process — Maybe you are using public money to procure, if so there are often legal requirements to consider. We show you how to navigate these.
  • Contracting and legals — We are not legal experts and you should always seek your own legal input. However, we give you tips on what you should consider when entering into contractual agreements with suppliers/contractors.
  • Managing your contractors — Procurement is the easy bit, managing your contractors to get the best out of them is where the hard part starts. We give you an understanding of the processes you should follow.

The course is delivered over one full day with the conceptual aspects of procurement delivered in the morning and afternoon workshops where participants put the theory into practice.

We often face problems in our lives that feel beyond our ability to change. Benefits cuts. Unstable or underpaid work. Discrimination or abuse because of what we look like or where we are from. 
It doesn’t have to be this way. Working together, we can turn the things that frustrate us into campaigns that make society more fair for everyone. 
Everyday Activism is a free of charge, Yorkshire-based training programme designed to support you to develop the skills, community and confidence you need to start campaigning and make real change. 

Through face to face sessions, you’ll learn how to set goals, find your target, plan a strategy. You can have a go at starting a petition, organising a creative demonstration or talking to the media. 
You’ll learn how to get people to listen to you.
To be part of Everyday Activism you need a group of people who share your experiences and concerns and are ready to act together to improve life for your community. Time and location of sessions are flexible.
