In today's business environment the drive to obtain value and cut cost is overwhelming. Many organisations believe that tendering is the key to achieving this. This is partly led by government guidelines in the public sector, and policy in the private sector. Inevitably, the process is not always fully understood by those charged with the duty to implement it.
If the tender is incorrectly prepared or executed, it will lead to buying the wrong goods or services and therefore creating high levels of risk and additional costs.
This course is designed to develop the necessary understanding and skills to gain the advantages of tendering and avoid the pitfalls.
