Tender Writing Workshop

September 22, 2020 @ 9:30 AM - 11:00 AM

Tender Writing

Tender Writing has become an increasingly specialised skill, and essential for many businesses to be successful. The workshop covers the essentials of tender writing, how a tender is different to a grant, and how to be “tender ready”. Many tenders require applicants to be pre-qualified, and examples of meeting pre-qualification will be discussed. The workshop is based on the Queensland Government’s best practice guides and RAPAD’s experience over many years of working with businesses.

You will learn:

What is a Tender

Where to find out about Tenders

How to submit a conforming tender

Understand how tenders are assessed, evaluated and awarded

How to increase your chance of success

How to navigate the maze of online tender writing resources, critical websites and where to find key information

Key contacts and services in North Queensland to assist you with your tenders
