Winning Public Contracts
Winning public RFPs can be very attractive. Public order volumes are generally relatively large in comparison to most private contracts.
It is important to know the particularities of public contracts so as not to make any procedural errors which would lead to your proposal being excluded.
This workshop explains the public RFP system and participants discover the strategies, methods and tricks which are key to winning more public contracts.
In this course you will learn how to create a successful proposal without violating the rules of public RFPs.
