Training for local businesses on how to tender

Local suppliers in West Oxfordshire can find out how to do business with the District Council by attending a free lunchtime workshop.

Council procurement experts will explain how goods and services are purchased and the sort of information needed by the Council to evaluate and award contracts. They will also be on hand to answer any questions.

The workshop will take place at the Council’s Woodgreen offices in Witney on Wednesday 8 October from 12noon to 2pm.

Places can be booked by emailing nicky.atkin@westoxon.gov.uk.

Cllr Richard Langridge, Cabinet Member responsible for the Local Economy said, “The procurement process is not simple, especially for larger contracts as all public sector organisations have to follow the stringent conditions laid down by European law.

“We are keen to work with more small local businesses and so we are hoping that this workshop will help to equip them with the knowledge needed to put forward their bids and tenders.”

The Council has a duty to achieve best value for money when procuring goods and services.

Council contracts and tenders are published on the website at www.westoxon.gov.uk/business/tenders-contracts
