Brian Hayes TD, Minister of State with special responsibility for the Office of Public Works (OPW) and Minister for Small Business John Perry recently launched a major new Report on Opportunities in Public Sector Procurement.

The Report, compiled by Dr. Paul Davis of the DCU Business School, is a result of Ireland’s first national survey of public procurement practice, carried out by the National Procurement Service (NPS) of the OPW, with over 4,000 suppliers and 600 public procurers contributing to the research.

Why is this report of interest?

It lets you know about the opportunities in public procurement over the coming years.  It gives a great insight as to where you need to position yourself in the market to sell to public sector buyers.

The report also reinforces the difficulties suppliers are having across all sectors and how it will get better in the coming years. It provides guidance on compiling better tenders, what you need to do to improve, and what buyers look for in evaluating tenders and awarding contracts.
