WORKSHOP WILL MAKE IT EASIER FOR LOCAL FIRMS TO DO BUSINESS WITH GOVERNMENT
Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson is encouraging local businesses to take advantage of a new workshop which will make it easier for them to access government contract opportunities.
Mr Anderson said Business Connect will hold a procurement workshop in Tamworth on Tuesday 10th October 2017 at West Tamworth Leagues Club.
“These fantastic workshops will show small and medium sized businesses how they can maximise opportunities to supply goods and services to government agencies,” Mr Anderson said.
“It will be one of 23 free procurement workshops being held across metropolitan and regional locations, some of which will be specifically tailored to Aboriginal businesses.
“Businesses will be able to use the workshops to skill-up on government tender procedures so they can be ‘tender ready’ to put their best proposals forward when opportunities arise.
“For example, a large contract tender for cleaning and maintenance will be launched by Property NSW from October to November 2017.
“The workshops will alert businesses on what opportunities are coming, how government purchasing works, and how to set themselves up for future success,” he said.
Deputy Premier and Minister for Small Business, Skills and Regional NSW John Barilaro said the NSW Government’s $30 million Business Connect provides trusted advice on starting and growing a small business.
“This practical and innovative advisory program is designed to ensure NSW small businesses can continue to drive Australia's best performing economy.
“Our small business sector is growing faster than anywhere else in the country and we’re committed to keeping NSW the number one State to start and grow a business,” he said.
