Bidding Effectively for European Union Contracts

Date: - 17:00
Location: Haydock

Currently the EU spends some €10 billion each year in grant aid outside the EU. These provide valuable business opportunities for consultants, suppliers, and contractors who undertake EU development-aid projects or participate in economic co-operation actions in developing regions around the world.

The vast array of projects available ranges from providing infrastructure, such as highways, power plants and irrigation systems to rural development projects, training, tourism capacity building (transferring professional expertise) private sector development and SME Support.

Bidding for EU contracts can be a very costly and labour intensive activity, and many UK companies have lost out simply by failing to comply with basic tendering criteria.

To help you get it right, the UK Trade & Investment Aid-Funded Business Service and Crown Agents, who have world-wide experience of the management of procurement activity and training on International Funding Institutions' procurement programmes, offer this one-day workshop for companies providing services.
