“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’.
“Businesses are encouraged to attend and make the most of this opportunity to better equip themselves to successfully pitch for local government business in the future.”
