Local Government Supplier Engagement Event
1st October 2019, 10.00am – 2.00pm
CityWest Hotel & Conference Centre
InterTradeIreland in partnership with The Local Government Management Agency (LGMA) are delighted to deliver a Supplier Engagement event focusing on Local government opportunities in the greater Dublin and surrounding areas.
The event is being managed and coordinated with the following Councils:
Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council
Fingal County Council
Kildare County Council
Louth County Council
Meath County Council
South Dublin County Council
Wicklow County Council
Procurement staff from these eight councils have come together over the past few months and liaised with their budget holders, engineers, emergency services and decision makers and identified potential procurement opportunities coming up over the next 18-24 months under the following categories:
Corporate Services and Housing
Roads, Transportation, Marine & General Service
Community, Sports, Arts and Recreation
Finance & ICT
They now want to meet with suppliers, new or existing, with tried and tested products or new innovative ideas, in these sectors, to see how they can deliver these services and ensure the invitation to tenders reflect the market place. The views of the market are important and this event represents an opportunity for participants to provide early input into contracting approaches and service delivery models. This is your opportunity to engage with the relevant people on the ground.
The event will also provide attendees with the opportunity to:
Speak to Procurement staff from the councils to learn about procurement processes and existing tender opportunities.
Speak to representatives from the council’s local enterprise office and SME government and industry bodies in a business support zone, and
Attend information sessions including: eTenders.gov.ie, Consortia Development and Brexit
