The Burdekin Shire Council is hosting two workshops in partnership with the Department of State Development to help local businesses gain tenders.
Economic Development Manager Adrian Scott said the first of the workshops would guide businesses on how to outline their capabilities and skills.
“This focusses on a capability statement which allows procurement teams to assess a business’ expertise, achievements and potential to deliver goods and services,” he said.
“It will show businesses how to use the capability statement to market their product or service and can be used to accompany tender submissions.
“The capability statement can also be uploaded on to online databases for ease of access to procurement teams.”
The Capability Statement workshop will be held at the Ideas@108 innovation space at the Burdekin Library Ayr on Wednesday, April 6 from 8.30am until 1pm. The cost is $50 and includes morning tea and lunch.
Mr Scott said the second workshop would cover tendering for government business.
“This will help suppliers maximise their chances of securing work with all levels of government and in the private sector,” he said.
“Businesses will learn the principles of government procurement policies and processes, how to interpret and respond to offer and tender documents, where to look for tenders, and how to conduct market research.
“This workshop is a must for anyone looking to service government tenders and I would urge all businesses to attend.”
The Tendering for Government Business Workshop will be held at the Ideas@108 innovation space at the Burdekin Library Ayr on Wednesday, April 20 from 8.30am-1pm. The cost is $50 and includes morning tea and lunch.
