September Edition


As we sweep into September, we’re looking forward to helping our clients reach their goals by the end of the calendar year.

We’ve been particularly excited to work with a number of local councils to improve their Development Application (DA) processes. Word is getting out about how we can help, and we’re seeing the fruits of this work emerge with improved speed and accuracy of DA handling. Read more about our work with the Canada Bay Council below.

We’ve also been keeping a keen eye out for tenders as always. One particular tender caught our interest last month – the Flood Recovery Program with the Aboriginal Housing Office.  Procure Spot has put in a bid for this tender and we hope to receive a successful result in the coming months.

Schemes and grants

Open tenders worth up to $35 billion are available throughout Australia, and governments want small to medium sized businesses to receive their fair share of the pie.

We’re regularly asked, “what is the best way to get into government?”, and our recommendation is to start by applying to a state government prequalification scheme.

Successful appointment to a prequalification scheme means that state government departments and agencies can engage with you directly, outside of the tendering process.

It’s also a great way to promote your services as a preferred supplier to government.

Reach out if you have any queries or require assistance, we’re always happy to help.

All the best for September.

Is this tender right for you?

If you’ve ever applied for a tender, you’ll know how tedious it can be to navigate through the various government portals and to understand the plethora of requirements for each tender.

Amidst all this work, businesses can often miss a vital first step – to check whether the government tender is right for you in the first place.

Our Go/No-Go Checklist is a unique and valuable tool to help businesses decide whether to apply for a tender or not. It is a vital decision that can save businesses time and money, and avoid the hassle of applying for unsuitable tenders.
