The Office of Government Commerce (OGC) has today launched an awareness raising campaign to promote greater access for smaller firms to the £220 billion worth of contract opportunities awarded by the public sector each year. The announcement comes as the OGC publishes the guidance Small Supplier, Big Opportunity: Flagging your contracts to SMEs, showing how the public sector can make it easier for small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) to identify appropriate contract opportunities.

Throughout 2010, OGC and the Department for Business Innovation and Skills (BIS), will extend the regional workshops, recently piloted in the North East, to ensure that procurers understand how to effectively implement procurement practices that not only improve the visibility and access to opportunities but also levels the playing field for SMEs to successfully compete for appropriate contracts. These events will include training for regional SMEs on bidding for public sector contracts, regional procurers and the Federation of Small Businesses.

The OGC will also be publishing a series of additional guidance during the year for both the procurement and supplier communities to maximise the opportunities for small firms to deliver both innovative and value for money solutions for the public. This work will complement the online training course “Winning the Contract” launched by BIS and OGC last month and designed to help businesses gain the necessary skills required to bid for public sector contracts.
