Selling to govt body

The service sector's needs are different from market-driven sectors in the way entity-provider relationships are managed. There is also greater emphasis on the client and measuring success through improvement in client outcomes. Use the resources tailored to support your social services commissioning or procurement process.

You can apply to be a supplier to a collaborative contract when the contract returns to market. New or renewing collaborative contracts will be advertised on this portal. You apply the process, and if successful, might be the only supplier or one of a panel of suppliers that entities can choose to use. If you're part of a panel of suppliers on a collaborative tender.

You can be contracted directly to provide goods or services to any government agency that has signed up to the contract. Sometimes an agency might run a secondary procurement process, and invite some or all suppliers on the panel to tender for a specific requirement. Understand that no matter how good you are you will not win unless you make your strengths clear on paper too. Think of it as an exam - answer the question, don’t elaborate and think about getting advice if it’s your first time. The public sector is making the process simpler but remember that it will rightly be held accountable for the procurement decisions it makes, in a way the private sector is not.
