Businesses learn tender success

BUSINESSES in the Gympie Region now have the opportunity to learn how to increase their chances of success when preparing and submitting tenders to larger organisations or contractors.

Following from the successful Gympie – Building the Recovery forum held by the Australian Government Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations recently, Gympie Regional Council will be offering a Preparing Your Business for Tendering workshop to be held in on Tuesday, February 23, at the Gympie RSL between 7am and 8:30am.

Gympie Regional Council’s Economic Development Officer, Lynne Wilbraham, said that the workshop will provide information which will help businesses market their capability to supply and ensure that they can comply with tender requirements.

Council is partnering with the Australian Government Department of Department of Innovation, Industry, Science and Research, Chamber of Commerce and Industry Queensland and the Gympie Chamber of Commerce to offer this workshop.

“It is very important for business operators to also understand requirements such as workplace health and safety and risk management processes when considering whether or not to lodge a tender,” Mrs Wilbraham said.

“Tenders are regularly offered by Local, State and Federal Government departments and can offer great opportunities for businesses to secure very rewarding long or short term contracts.”

Workshop registration is from 6:45am with the cost to attend $22. For more information or to book your place, contact Lynne Wilbraham on 5481 0744.
