Forth Valley Meet the Buyer
Do you want to hear the latest news and opportunities for local businesses related to the Stirling and Clackmannanshire City Region Deal, and the Falkirk Growth Deal? Stirling Council, Falkirk Council and Clackmannanshire Council, in partnership with the Supplier Development Programme, will host a Meet the Buyer event online on Wednesday, 30 June 2021 to engage with local businesses.
Suppliers will be able to meet procurement teams from the three Forth Valley councils, alongside other public and private sector buying organisations, and can also find out how to become 'tender ready' for bid writing for these many opportunities through free training from the Supplier Development Programme.
This is an inclusive opportunity to be amongst the first to learn about the contract opportunities and how to prepare for bidding for framework opportunities that are sure to be part of these two economic growth Deals.
Falkirk Growth Deal and Stirling and Clackmannanshire City Region Deal
Businesses can be amongst the first to know what potential opportunities are coming up in relation to the Stirling and Clackmannanshire City Region Deal, worth £214m of funding to boost the economy across Stirlingshire and Clackmannanshire, and the Falkirk Growth Deal with project funding worth £90m to help boost the economy around Falkirk.
Falkirk Council will be giving a presentation about its Growth Deal, followed by a live Q&A with the Council's procurement team. The Deal aims to boost the local economy and create skilled jobs and enable investments in infrastructure improvements to support sustainable travel, tourism, and energy.
Stirling Council and Clackmannanshire Council will be presenting together, as the Councils are headline partners in a joint City Region Deal. The presentation will be followed by a live Q&A with procurement staff from both Stirling and Clackmannanshire.
Virtual Exhibit Hall
Suppliers will be able to virtually visit exhibition stands, download information and speak directly on a one-to-one basis with buyers via in-built video conferencing.
This Forth Valley Meet the Buyer event aims to help local businesses find out what contract opportunities are available both within the three councils, local supply chains, and further afield across a range of sectors. Participants will explore how to do business with public sector buyers and gain an operational understanding of how to become part of supply chains.
All suppliers are welcome. Please book your free place at this event in advance. You can join the conversation on social media by using the #FVMeetTheBuyer and #PowerOfSDP hashtags.
