Future Contract Opportunities for the Third Sector – P4P Roadshow Ayrshire

P4P Roadshow Ayrshire slides 2018 09 04

Looking to grow your social enterprise or third sector organisation? Have you considered bidding for public contracts?

Public bodies in Scotland with a significant procurement spend will soon be required to publish details of upcoming tender opportunities as part of their annual procurement report.

The purpose of this event is to provide you with details of upcoming contract opportunities for the third sector in Ayrshire as well as a basic knowledge of the benefits of partnership working, how to get started, potential models for consortia, and real-life examples of existing, successful partnerships. The session will be interactive and provide you with the opportunity to discuss in detail the points raised during presentations, and to network and share experiences with fellow network members.

The workshop is being delivered by Partnership for Procurement (P4P) with support from Voluntary Action South Ayrshire, the Ayrshire Community Trust, North Ayrshire Council and CVO East Ayrshire.

Partnership for Procurement (P4P) is an initiative, managed by Senscot, which supports social enterprises and the wider third sector to better access public contracts and other contracting opportunities and to develop partnerships and consortia.
