Giving the gift of tender training to charity

18 August 2009
Last week we ran a story on the Scottish government providing tender writing training services for up to 400 not-for-profit organisations over the next two years. Although this is not unique, I thought it was an excellent and simple way of engaging third sector organisations in public sector contracts. The training - which is part of a wider engagement with not-for-profit groups - will also help the third sector become less dependent on grant funding. Why is it important to contract with third sector organisations? What is the best way to encourage them to bid on deals?
