If you want help with winning this tender, then take a look at our Tender Writing page.

The West Midlands was one of three trail-blazing regions to launch an early Local Industrial
Strategy. The West Midlands Local Industrial Strategy (WMLIS) identifies the food and drink
manufacturing as a key sector strength for the region.
GBSLEP is leading on the delivery of the Food and Drink Sector Recovery Plan through a
partnership between the three West Midlands LEPs (Coventry and Warwickshire Local
Enterprise Partnership, Black Country Local Enterprise Partnership, Greater Birmingham &
Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership).
As a result of limited time, expertise or awareness SMEs in the food and drink manufacturing
sector can find bidding for supply chain opportunities a challenge. It is now more important
than ever that businesses are given the tools to successfully win contracts in our local and
national supply chains, to support business sustainability and growth.
To this end GBSLEP requires a Provider to design and conduct a cohort-based business
support programme to increase the confidence and understanding of food and drink
manufacturing businesses bidding for supply chain opportunities. This programme will be
titled ‘Winning Bids – A programme for Food & Drink Manufacturers’. The programme will betailored to food and drink manufacturers in the GBSLEP, CWLEP and BCLEP areas.
Suggested topics could include bid writing skills, pitching in the food and drink sector and
successful pricing.
We are looking for a provider to deliver the following:
• Programme design, scheduling and supporting material
• Workshop delivery and facilitation of approximately 8x 2 hour workshops
• Promotional content design
• Reporting
All training events are expected to be held virtually using tools such as Microsoft Teams or
Zoom or alternatives.
