What suppliers expect from procurement – Premier Confex 21 flashback


Uncovering what suppliers really think about the way procurement executes the competitive tendering process returns as a key topic to Premier Confex 2022. 

David Lunn from BidWrite, an award-winning specialised tender and proposal management services organisation, is back again among the keynote speakers to grace the region’s leading procurement conference on October 12 and 13 in Melbourne. 

In future, buying from an oligopoly in the ANZ market, we may become more and more dependent on local suppliers. 

“Tendering is an investment, not a transaction,” David said in his 2021 Premier Confex presentation. 

David will expose what procurement teams could do to support suppliers better from RFx documents to suboptimal tendering processes and tenders and proposals. 

This year, get David’s new Top six tips to competitive sourcing outcomes.

In 2021, ‘From the Supplier’s point of view’ was a popular topic as David explored the Business development lifecycle before, during and after the contract award.
