The course is designed to fully equip delegates with the necessary understanding, skills, tools and templates to swiftly and effectively implement world-class tendered procurement strategies and processes to ensure that the organisation is able to capitalise on the many opportunities available when utilising a class-leading approach to a well-structured and thought out tender process.
The course provides the basis for being a “good customer” by embracing a structure to the tendering process that ensures engaging with a valuable supplier partner. The two days include preparation, best practice procedures, bid evaluation, award, debriefing along with models for implementation and onward contract management. Two days that provide delegates with the key skills to develop and implement the learning outcomes and drive sustainable business savings benefits through building and managing their own tender process.
Although focusing on the process from a procurement perspective, uniquely this course also considers the effects of the process on the supplier base and gives insights into the immediate and long-term implications to the ongoing supplier relationship management.
