Contracts advice

ADVICE on bidding for public sector contracts is being offered in a free workshop.

The Procurement Centre, which is a free service provided by Northumberland County Council, is hosting the session at Longhirst Hall to help businesses understand the bidding process and learn how to prepare to win.

It is part of a package of support offered by the service, ranging from finding commercial opportunities and helping with tenders to putting together policy documents and one-to-one advice.

The workshop will take place at the hotel on Thursday, September 15, from 9.30am to 4.30pm.

Anyone wishing to attend should call 01670 842884 to ensure a place.
