Winning government business

The Tasmanian and Australian Governments are committed to ensuring businesses are aware of opportunities to tender for government business.

The government is getting behind and backing small business by delivering the Winning Government Business Program.

Since 2014, we have delivered a series of free workshops and masterclasses across Tasmania showing you how to improve your tender writing skills. The latest workshops, Top Ten Tendering Tips, and our brand new Tender Coaching Clinics have finished for 2017 but you can read the fact sheets below.

Coming up later this year are our new Grant Writing Workshops. Applying for grants can be daunting so this session will explain the tricky bits and make the process clearer. We’ll have the dates for the workshops soon.
