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

Responding to requests to tender for government and contractor work can open up new opportunities for your business, however it's essential to understand the steps required to writing a successful submission.

This session will explain how adopting efficient and effective tendering procedures for your business can save hours of time, and significantly increase your chances of winning the work.

This topic covers:

  • Overview of the tendering process

  • Where to find tender opportunities

  • Understanding the various types of tenders

  • How to prepare and present a tender

  • Developing case studies

  • How to quote for a tender

  • When to use external parties and collaborative bidding

  • Developing a risk matrix

  • How to prequalify for some tender opportunities

This session is for small business owners who are new to tendering and are keen to grow their business through contracts in the mining, construction or government sectors.

The facilitiator for this topic, IMG, provides a number of services tailored to supporting pre-start up, start-up and SME businesses. They specialise in working with Western Australian businesses to navigate the avenues for growth, and educate entrepreneurs in a wide variety of best business practices through one-on-one and group workshops.

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.
