Event description
This workshop takes an in-depth look at tendering key criteria, whether it is a good option for your business and how to be tender-ready.

About this Event

Please note: this event is run by the Small Business Development Corporation for small business owners in Western Australia only.

Tendering for government contracts can be a great way to grow your business and to compete against larger organisations.

This practical workshop is designed for small businesses who are new to quotes and tendering in either government or private procurement, or for those who made a start but do not understand the requirements.

The session will provide you with a workbook and tips on how to work out if tendering is right for your business and give insight and real-life experiences to build your knowledge and confidence to successful tendering. We will go through every section of a local government request for tender to get a better understanding of the rules of tendering and how to make sure you are ready to start.

This topic covers

  • Explain the requirements for tendering and quoting;
  • Provide tips and the tools to be tender ready;
  • Determine gaps in business systems and processes which could be preventing you from tendering;
  • Discuss the pros and cons of tendering for business growth.

This session is for people who are new to tendering, or have tried previously without success. Please bring a copy of any completed quotes or proposals (successful or otherwise).

The facilitator for this topic, Ichiban Commercial Solutions, provides a range of practical workshops to help remove barriers to winning government tenders. The workshop is presented by Principal Procurement Advisor, Celia Jordaan. As a small business owner herself, Celia understands your situation, and combines this knowledge with her corporate and international experience in law, procurement, and the management of risk and contractors.  

This session is presented by the SBDC, the only agency in the Western Australian Government dedicated to helping small business. In fact, we've been providing practical support to small business owners for more than 30 years.

Our online workshops are live, interactive sessions, similar to the format of our face-to-face sessions.
