This is a guest post by Roy Scannell, formerly of EI’s Public Procurement Team, now working for the Go-2-Tender Programme.
What is Go-2-Tender?
Go-2-Tender is a programme that is essential for anyone who is currently or is interested in selling to the Public Sector in the future. It encompasses a two day training course with up to 3 days of free mentoring sessions post the course which really has a very strong positive impact on their tendering success rates.
For example last year’s graduates have posted an achievement of €7m of contracts won since the programme series ran with the most recent happening in November. Go-2-Tender is Ireland’s most developed and preeminent ‘doing business with the public sector’ up-skilling programme.
For the full programme of events including our next programme in Castlebar, Co. Mayo on the 13th and 27th of April click here.
This time around we have a few more strings to our ‘tendering’ bow with the roll out of our ramped up online offering which is complimentary to the training programme and mentoring. It includes:
- A free iPhone App with a live stream of cross border opportunities and a bid / no bid decision maker; which you can access if you click here
- A partner finding service
- Web forum
- Course materials
- A public sector directory
- Linkedin, Twitter and Facebook networking groups (These are only open to Go-2-Tender graduates)
