Interested in winning contracts with the public sector? Applying for public sector contracts can appear daunting to new, and even more experienced, suppliers but The Supplier Development programme (SDP) delivered by a collaboration of the local Councils in Tayside can help.

The SDP provides an extensive range of advice, information, training and events, FREE of charge to businesses who register on their web-site. By working with businesses which see opportunities for growth through public sector tendering the Tayside Local Authorities wish to support local businesses win more work with them.

The key aim is to help more Tayside businesses become "tender ready" and to assist them to win extra business from the public sector.
