Procurement surgeries, events and training
We work with Business Gateway to take an active role in supporting businesses to develop and build the local economy.
We run events to help you develop your business and bid for public sector contracts. The events programme consists of
Monthly procurement surgeries
Procurement surgeries are an opportunity for you to meet our procurement staff and ask any questions you may have.
Quarterly Meet the Buyer events
Meet the Buyer events, four times a year, are a chance to meet other councils and public sector organisations.
Targeted training sessions
Targeted training sessions will be held throughout the year. We have developed these from your feedback to support you to raise the standard of your bids and your understanding of procurement.
