"I need you to write a tender. Submissions in a week and the customers in Australia, here's the link" my client words "okay, I will take a look" I reply, positive as ever about a new challenge. My client, likes to push boundaries and expand into new markets and is especially keen on the NHS Australian market. But bidding for Australian business presents a challenge, mainly the time difference, presenting via Skype at 02:30 in the morning (UK time) is not to most people's liking.
As Australia has a reciprocal healthcare agreement with the UK and the UK attempts to strike a post Brexit deal with the Trans Pacific free trade area, how and where can UK businesses find and bid for NHS Australian tenders?
AusTender is the Australian Government's procurement information system providing a central database of Australian Government business opportunities. Businesses can enrol for free tender alerts with AusTender.
