Supplier Development

Dallas Dhu
Procurement is complex - from finding the tender opportunities to assessing the risk to completing the documentation and submitting the tender.
The Supplier Development Programme (SDP) is a local authority partnership programme established to offer small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) the opportunity to grow and diversify through procurement.

The Supplier Development Programme's main priority is to build awareness and provide information, education and training on public procurement and contract opportunities. This prepares businesses to reach the stage required to tender for public contracts whilst delivering transferable business skills that will improve their overall competitiveness and profitability.

On the SDP website you will find top tips for responding to Public tenders, as well as fact sheets, jargon busters and help with policies. In addition the SDP also provides workshops to cover specific topics relating to working with, and completing tenders for the Public Sector.
