Navigating Public Sector Competitions - The Feedback Process

27 March 2024, 12:30 PM

At this final session, we'll look at the feedback process. After every public sector bid when the result of the tender is communicated to you, it should be accompanied by some feedback. In this session, we will go through examples of useful feedback and an overview of what you should expect to get or can ask for from the contracting authority. We will also chat about how to use feedback for future work. We'll also discuss what to do if you're not happy with either the outcome or process and where you can go to get support.

With the Procurement Act due to come into force in October 2024, we'll also showcase how feedback processes will change under the new regulations and what bidders can expect to get in the future.
