“SMEs will learn about the benefits of bidding for public sector contracts, through one-to-one meetings with the key personnel from the representative councils.

“As well as engaging directly with key staff, there will be a series of information sessions on related topics such as ‘Consortia Development’ and ‘Brexit Planning’, as well as ‘Getting Ready for Green Procurement’ and the new ‘National Building Control Regulation Unit’.
