FREE online workshops to appoint more SME suppliers from Newham

Two day tender insight workshops

Newham Council & Our Newham Business and Enterprise are looking to appoint more SME suppliers from Newham. Join award-winning trainer Andrea Childs of Klick Business Solutions to help your business get in the best position to win contracts with us.

The free online workshops will be delivered over two days:

Day 1: Social Value – How to tackle it in a tender

Wednesday 7 June – 11:00-12:00

Social Value now accounts for between 10% and 30% weighting in tender/bid evaluations. Andrea will lift the lid on this critical area for anyone looking to supply their services or products to the Council. Find out the importance and value of completing the Social Value questions for your company:

  • What social value means
  • Why social value matters in bids/tenders and how it relates to the way your company sells its services or products
  • How your organisation can take steps to demonstrate social value to the Council and other public sector buyers
  • How to prove and share your social value achievements and include realistic, quantified commitments within your tender.

Day 2: Selection Questionnaire (SQ) – How to complete an SQ

Wednesday 14 June – 11:00-13:00

Day 2 will be a session on how to complete an actual Newham Council Supplier Questionnaire (SQ) document, including:

  • The type of questions and topic areas you will have to respond to as part of your submission
  • What the Council wants to see in your response, what is important and what is marked
  • How to break down the SQ questions to gain maximum points for your response.
