Advice session will assist with tendering for council contracts

A FREE event aimed at helping Caithness-based businesses to supply Highland Council, is due to take place next month, in Wick.
Members of the councilís procurement team will be on hand to provide free information and advice to help businesses through the processes of tendering for Council contracts.
Caithness-based businesses which already supply, or wish to supply to the council are encouraged to come along to talk individually to Procurement staff.
Participants will be able to find out about upcoming contract opportunities from £5,000 to £5,000,000, discuss how the tendering process works, and discuss any concerns they might have.
Topics businesses may wish to discuss might include:

Advertising of contracts;
Pre-qualification questionnaires;
Invitiations to tender; and
Evaluation of tenders.
The advice session is scheduled to take place at Mackayís Hotel, Wick, on Wednesday 5 September.
Businesses can book a 15 minute slot with a member of staff between 9.00am and 4.30pm by telephoning 01463 703887, or emailing procurement.unit2@highland.gov.uk. Alternatively they can just drop in when convenient Ė but be prepared for a short wait.
