Tendering to government
Government tenders are a good way of finding new and rewarding business opportunities. Each year, federal, state and local governments invite the private sector to tender bids for the supply of goods and services they need. The government market requests tens of thousands of tenders annually, covering a wide range of sectors from office supplies to training services.
Government tenders allow everyone an equal opportunity to win business. They are run according to firm procurement guidelines and procedures that remove discrimination and bias. Government tenders encourage a competitive market and promote a fair and efficient use of government funds.
The need to maintain accountability and transparency means that governments must run tender processes according to clear instructions. Tender request documents from government agencies fully detail these process instructions and describe the job requirements and selection criteria providers must meet. Your careful attention to tender requests could win you valuable business.
This guide explains the government tender process and describes how to prepare a tender for government.
