Help is at hand for Nairn businesses to supply The Highland Council

A free event aimed at helping Nairn area based businesses to supply The Highland Council will take place on Thursday 4 October in Nairn Community and Arts Centre.

Members of the Council’s Procurement team will be on hand to provide free information and advice to help businesses through the processes of tendering for Council contracts. More on the Highland Council site.

This is a great opportunity for small businesses and tradesmen to find out more about how to try and get a slice of the public sector opportunities. According to the HC blurb,
"Businesses in the Nairn area which already supply, or wish to supply to the Council are encouraged to come along to talk individually to Procurement staff.
Participants will be able to find out about upcoming contract opportunities from £5,000 to £5,000,000, discuss how the tendering process works, and discuss any concerns they might have.

So, businesses and tradesmen, why not go along and see if there is anything in it for you? There may not be but you never know?

I thought the council wanted to use one SOLE contractor to supply ALL trades.

All down to cheapest bidder, so set your prices low and you'll be in with a chance

That's not true - it is assessed as the best value for
Money which is often the company that best suits the job not necessarily the cheapest. The hard thing is the skill set needed to correctly complete tenders to best showcase a companies strengths.
