The diagnostic tool, developed by the Suffolk Growth Partnership, has been built on in conjunction with procurement leads from across Norfolk County Council, and allows businesses to answer a series of questions which are necessary when getting ready to, or bidding for, public sector contracts. Each question provides a variety of answers, and feedback is available based on the answer chosen.
The tool is designed to ensure businesses understand what bidding for public sector contracts can involve and the steps they need to take in order to successfully bid for contracts. Feedback is provided upon completion of the tool and this can be printed off for future reference.
Please note that any captured information may be shared with public sector partners to better understand procurement locally, and what can be done to support local business.
