This guide supports consortium tendering for public contracts.

It can be difficult for small businesses to compete for large public contracts. This guide shows how businesses can form consortia to increase their capacity. It explains the approach taken to collaborative tendering, and how to overcome problems during a procurement process.

The guide was tested in a series of pilot projects and the results are included in the Lessons learned report.

For help setting up a consortium to bid for a public contract, contact the Wales Cooperative Centre 0300 111 5050 or Business Wales 03000 6 03000.
