At GB Shared, we pride ourselves on being able to bring local tender and framework opportunities to our share members across the Northwest. We do this with the help of members like councils who share their tender opportunities and of course, our resident bid management specialists, Clarity Procurement.
Last year we delivered over £900 m in public tender opportunities to members inboxes, a number of those members applied for those tenders, some via Clarity Procurement, with some excellent wins for local businesses in electrical, drainage, print and other sectors. However, it's a surprising to us just how many businesses don't apply for tenders, especially when they're more than 'geared up' to deliver these contracts.
This is where we try to make things easier for you, helping our members to make sourcing and writing applications easier. If you're a share member who hasn't considered looking at public contracts as an income stream, why not start looking? We're here to help, with a platform full tenders, up-dated weekly, the ability to have them delivered direct to your inbox and bid writers on hand to support your application and pre-qualification process, why would you not?
