Do you know the benefits of bidding for government marketing tenders? In this blog, the Creative Tenders Team reveal all. Keep reading to find out more!
Buyers might release government marketing tenders to procure services across a range of subsectors, including:
When you bid for government marketing tenders, you’ll benefit from guaranteed pay upon winning the contract. This is because public sector organisations are bound by their contractual agreements to pay the awarded supplier.
Public sector buyers must pay contractors within 60 days of invoicing to comply with the Prompt Payment Code (2008). This is particularly reassuring for new businesses that might be hesitant about tendering for work.
Before they start tendering for work, many SMEs assume that it will be difficult to compete with bigger businesses. However, this isn’t actually the case.
In the UK, the government has a target to spend at least £1 in £3 with SMEs. This means that public sector businesses have a goal to actively award contracts to smaller businesses. If you’re a smaller creative business looking for government marketing tenders, you don’t need to worry about your larger competition.
To progress and win larger contracts, smaller businesses will need to gather case studies that showcase their relevant experience. If you’re new to tendering, these can be tricky to get your hands on. However, that’s where tendering for public sector contracts comes in.
SMEs will also be pleased to know that bidding for government marketing tenders is a great way to gain experience. New and smaller businesses can tender for contracts as part of framework agreements or Dynamic Purchasing Systems (DPS’). These are easier for smaller businesses to secure, as there are more places on offer.
So, once you’ve delivered work on these, you’ll have contract examples to show future buyers.
If you’re a creative business looking to find marketing opportunities, you should consider bidding for public sector contracts. The benefits of these contracts include:
