The North Cork Enterprise Board in Partnership with Cork County Council will hold a seminar on Public Procurement in the Mallow GAA Complex on Tuesday 12th July. A Business Seminar in Mallow on Tuesday 12th July 2011 will explain to potential contractors and business people how to tap into the massive national and local e-tendering process. However there will be a special focus on those who may have been slow to tender, up to now, because they were unfamiliar with the ‘how to’.
This Seminar will help educate people how to go about tendering better and they will understand what the Cork county Council are looking for.
MacDara O Hici head of procurement at Cork County Council will be speaking on the night and wants people who can do the job, for the best price rather than those who are good at tendering.
All public, semi-state and local authority procurements are now done through the e-tendering process, including Cork County Council and that is what the Seminar in Mallow will explain
Along with MacDara, also speaking will be Ger Power Head of Finance Cork County Council and Michael Hanley Manager North Cork Enterprise Board.
According to Michael Hanley; Cork County Council is one of the largest buyers in the region. In terms of goods and services there are numerous opportunities for local companies to be involved in supplying the Council. We are anxious that companies are aware of what the Council are seeking and how the process of tendering for this business works. Particularly in the current economic climate, this is an opportunity that must not be missed in getting first hand information from those directly involved in procurement.
There will be a questions and answers session, so that any grey areas can be fully explained to potential contractors and suppliers.
The seminar runs from 7pm to 8pm on Tuesday 12thJuly 2011.
The Event is open to all and admission is free, but booking is essential.
