Yes you do. The Government has stipulated that all UK public sector bodies should award a minimum of 25% of their tenders to SMEs and Micro businesses. Furthermore, many local authorities have made a specific pledge to increase their business with SMEs because they recognise the innovation and increased local employment that SMEs can bring. Many tenders these days even state they are SME Friendly.
The first step is to express your interest with the public sector body that has issued the tender. This doesn’t commit you to bidding for the tender but will allow you to obtain the full tender documentation. You will then have all of the information you need to decide whether or not to bid.
To express your interest you need to follow the instructions in the tender notice in your account.
