People who've just had their plans for a relaxing Christmas break dashed by a tender closing early in January will know that we are in the tender season. Intermedium tracks Federal Government ICT tenders, and our research shows that the rate of new tenders generally rises during the course of each financial year.
Tender data for the current financial year (from AusTender) shows that the number of tenders issued is considerably higher than in the previous two years.
Intermedium research shows that more than twice as many Federal ICT tenders closed in November 2007 as in the same period in 2005. Despite the election, it seems that ICT procurement activity in the Federal government market remains strong.
Intermedium will conduct a tender training course in Canberra on 8 February. It's designed specifically to help you understand the government tender process, and provide you with skills to prepare a winning response.
