Finding Opportunities in the Public Sector

September 17 at 10:00 AM- 10:45 AM

Providers often tell us that it can be really difficult to find the right opportunities in the public sector. There are lots of portals and different search engines so knowing where to start can be a challenge in its own right.

At this workshop, Lauren from Go4Growth will give an overview of who the public sector is, what they buy and importantly, how they buy goods and services.
We’ll go through some of the main portals to show you which portals are used in what geographical areas or by which public sector organisations. We will also cover how to search using Contracts Finder, the free government-hosted database of public sector opportunities as well as the Find A Tender Service.

We’ll also take a look forward to the new regulations and what will change in relation to advertising opportunities In addition, we’ll cover some of the other ways that the public sector engages with the provider marketplace discussing things like Meet the Buyer events and why they can be a great place for providers to build relationships with potential customers and how social media is beginning to change how the public sector advertises opportunities.

As always there will be lots of time for questions and discussion and we hope to see lots of providers from all sectors come and join us.
