Helping suppliers sell to the Council

Workshops for Small and Medium Sized Businesses (SMEs)

We are keen to support local and small businesses and where possible create tender opportunities which support the local economy. Currently approximately 50% of all Council business is with local suppliers.

We run a programme of workshops specifically targeted at small and medium enterprises (SMEs).

The workshops are designed to give SMEs further insight into how our procurement processes work and the type of standard information we expect from suppliers through a quotation or tender process.

If you are a locally based company and have an 'OX' postcode, we can also deliver workshops on-site. To talk this option through with the team, please contact us.

The events are designed to be as practical and interactive as possible.
