Where can I find invitations to tender?


I run a training and development consultancy called Performance Development based in North East England. I wish to grow the business by taking on bigger and more complex assignments. Does anyone know of any central pool of invitations to tender?

Alternatively if anyone is looking to pull together a team for a large project I can offer coaching and Performance Management expertise.

  1. This is a real need
    The need for a central forum for tenders has been recognised for some time – but making it happen is another matter ! You can find tender invitations in, for example, People Management, and in some national newspapers.

    We started the Tenders area of TrainingZone to meet this need simply and cheaply. We plan to do some more promotion work on this feature, probably with some special offers.

    Meanwhile, we’d very much like to hear other suggestions for getting this whole networking of tenders going.

  2. Tender Ideas
    Major public sector bodies often tender but on a restricted list basis…not really “open” government, even if I have benefitted over the years!!!

    Perhaps Training Zone could approach some major institutions and seek their co-operation and views ? I have certainly noticed some invitations to tender in fairly obscure places: a placing on sites like Training Zone would catch a good specialist audience….then again if you don’t actually want competition maybe its not such a good idea…..

  3. UK Public Sector Tenders
    Hi Matt,

    Public Sector ITT’s can be a time consuming and a nuisance really. If going it alone, be careful to read details in the contract notice about contractor requirements before commencing. It might be wasted time and energy to begin tender prep only to find out that you dont have the necessary public liability insurance or professional indemnity or something silly like that.

    Try– part of the site is subscription only, but you can get a good idea of whats there from the free part. Should you subscribe, you may find the monthly “Government Opportunities” hard copy magazine quite useful.

    You may find as well.

    All the best.
