Businesses can Save £1000's with Free Tender Feeds and Alerts

Writing about web page http://www.ready-for-business.co.uk

Thanks to everyone you came to the Prepare for 2012 Presentation. If you would like to remind yourself about how to get free access to tenders, how to find potential partners to submit more compelling bids, how to find supply chain opportunities, or even how to build your own business radar using newsfeeds, then here is the link to the presentation.

One local business women suddenly realised there was another strategy to winning 2012 related business, or indeed any large public sector opportunity.


Rather than bid for work directly, I am now going to search for companies who have already won business, and then approach them to ask for sub-contract opportunities. This will save the huge amount of effort required to submit responses to pre-qualification questionnaires (PQQ's), and invitation to tenders (ITT's).

Neat trick!

See how to use news feeds as a source of tenders, or contract awards - have a look at my earlier article.

Very Short Deadline on London 2012 Tender

As you can imagine, the pressure is on to award contracts to make sure the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games are delivered on time. But some contract notices have had a very short notice. Just 4 days for a recent "Preliminary Pile Testing" contract! This didn't go un-noticed by the James Watkins, Executive Director at the West Midlands Business Council. If you missed out, please go to www.ready-for-business.co.uk whereyou can contact James, and make sure that your interest is properly registered with the Olympic Delivery Authority.

London 2012 Olympic & Paralympic Games

Writing about web page http://www.readyforbusiness-wm-london2012.com

The Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) have been busy inviting expressions of interest

Temporary Venues Industry Day

The Olypmic Delivery Authority Procurement team is holding an industry day on Wednesday 13 June 2007, 9:15am, in London to introduce the ODA's vision for the temporary venues to experienced suppliers and contractors of medium- to long-span fully enclosed lightweight structures. The industry day will focus on the Basketball, Fencing and Hockey venues which are expected to be operational as early as 18 months before the Games.

Velodrome Design & Construction

This venue will be the theatre for all track cycling activities for the London 2012 Olympic Games and Paralympic Games. After the Games the building will be reconfigured to provide a lasting legacy of the Games. The ODA wishes to appoint a Tier 1 main contractor for the design and construction of the Velodrome including the Legacy Conversion. The scope of the contract is to design and construct the Velodrome based on a design prepared by the Design Team that is currently being procured.

HR recruitment and selection

Over the course of 2007 to 2012 the ODA HR team will deliver a recruitment and selection service ensuring the right people with the right skills are recruited in the most effective way. It is vital that the ODA has the capability and expertise needed to ensure the successful delivery of the 2012 project. The scope of the procurement will cover the provision of all recruitment and selection services.

For full details see the pre-qualification questionnaire documentation on the eTendering section of the London 2012 website.

The deadline for the receipt of expressions of interest and completed pre-qualification questionnaire (PQQ) documentation is 17:00 (BST) on Friday, 22 June 2007.

Ready-mixed concrete supply

The ODA intends to issue an exclusive licence to one supplier to supply ready-mix concrete to all Olympic Park contractors. This will include the erection of the batching plant(s), delivery, off loading, batching and distribution to the various contractors across the Olympic Park site.

For full details see the pre-qualification questionnaire documentation on the eTendering section of the London 2012 website.
