Resources to help your small business acquire the knowledge and skills to tender for NSW Government contracts and local government opportunities
Selling goods and services to the NSW Government and councils can be an important growth opportunity for small businesses. The NSW Government spends more than $40 billion each year on the procurement of goods, services and construction.
It can be challenging, however, for a business to qualify as a government supplier, identify suitable tender opportunities and navigate the procurement process.
The Commission has partnered with TAFE NSW to deliver online training modules for small businesses on how to become a successful supplier to the NSW Government. The modules cover four major topics:
- Getting Business Ready
- Finding Opportunities
- Selling to Government
- Successful Supplying
Those who successfully complete the courses receive a certificate of acknowledgment.
