Calling all Social Enterprises
Ready for Business Consortium

The Ready for Business consortium wishes to highlight the success of the Third Sector in winning contracts from the public sector, and in sharing examples of good practice in the way that the public sector is effectively commissioning and procuring services and products.  Has your organisation won any public contracts? In what ways were you supported in accessing information about the forthcoming tender opportunity, in submitting a bid, and in the management of delivery of the contract?

Would you like to submit an outline Case Study which if successful will be published by Ready for Business on its website ( with the offer of a choice of prizes from Run Native [].

If so please complete the e-survey by close of play on Wed. 8th January 2014.

The criteria for selection of the three winners will be:
• Level of engagement with public sector commissioner or procurement staff
• Scope for development of community benefit clauses or social outcomes as part of tenders
• Clarity re learning either for Third Sector organisations or for Public Sector Commissioners/Procurers.
