Neil Griffiths, Deputy Director for Procurement Services and the newly appointed SME champion, said:
“The Department welcomes the role that SMEs play in meeting our diverse contract requirements and in delivering the benefits they bring. As champion, I am keen to ensure the Department provides support to SMEs so they can access the opportunities to do business with us.”
As part of the commitment to maximise access for SME to contracting opportunities, the Department:
- publishes contract opportunities in a timely way to give sufficient time for SMEs to participate. Opportunities are advertised on Contracts Finder
- has put in place a number of targeted actions and activities to support the SME programme.
