BUSINESS Link has enhanced its North West portal with the launch of a new section, designed to provide businesses with access to public sector tender opportunities and deliver guidance around the tendering process.

Available at tendering, the section covers four key areas: preparing tender documents; dealing with the public sector; finding major tender opportunities and tendering opportunities for major sporting events including the London 2012 Games.

It looks at opportunities in the North West, nationally and abroad, providing support to help businesses optimise their chance of success and win new contracts.

It also includes information about tendering and procurement related events.

Kathrin Roehe, a member of the website content team at Business Link Northwest, said: “The new tendering section pulls together information and guidance to help businesses supply to the public sector.

“Tendering processes may seem daunting but don’t be put off. Our online resource helps you to cut through the maze to give you the best possible chance of success.”

The portal at offers information about business issues specific to the North West.
