Local Investment

Local-InvestmentWhat is Local Investment?

STAR Procurement, in conjunction with Stockport, Trafford and Rochdale Councils is reviewing the way in which each of these STAR Councils tenders for low value contract opportunities in each Borough. We are trialling this initiative in Rochdale, before rolling-out in Stockport and Trafford

Are you interested in contracting with the STAR Councils?

STAR Procurement has launched a series of FREE workshops to support local businesses to bid for future opportunities. The workshops are suitable for businesses new to the tendering process or looking to improve how they tender. The workshops are initially being held in the Rochdale area and we will be offering further workshops in 2018 across both Stockport and Trafford areas

The workshops will cover:

  1. Introduction to STAR Procurement
  2. Local investment - changes to the Councils' internal processes and the move to risk based sourcing
  3. The importance of social value
  4. Top tips for tendering
  5. ‘The Chest’ online tendering portal – how to register (for new users), registration health checks (for existing users) and finding opportunities (for both new and existing users)

Below is a list of current workshops. To register, click on the date of the workshop that you wish to book. This will take you to Eventbrite, the portal we are using to coordinate bookings. Places are limited, so book early to avoid disappointment!
