How do you respond to a Government tender to give you the best chance at winning the bid?

This question, among others, was answered at the BEDC sponsored seminar entitled “Understanding the Government Procurement and Tendering Process” on Thursday, 18 February 2016 at the BIU.

Over 30 people attended the three hour seminar which commenced at 8:30 am with a welcome from BEDC Board Member Marico Thomas.

Vicki Medeiros, Property Officer for the Bermuda Housing Corporation opened the seminar with a presentation on the opportunities that exist for individuals through the BHC.

She advised that the BHC has over 300 properties that it manages which require maintenance and that there are many opportunities to submit applications for these maintenance jobs.

Following her was Stephen Tucker, from the Ministry of Public Works.  Mr. Tucker shared that Public Works has had a long standing relationship with the BEDC and encouraged attendees to utilize the BEDC as a resource to assist with responding to tenders.  He indicated that it is important to complete the bids correctly to increase chances of success.
