InterTradeIreland in partnership with The Local Government Management Agency (LGMA) are delighted to deliver a Supplier Engagement event focusing on Local government opportunities in the greater Dublin and surrounding areas.

The event is being managed and coordinated with the following Councils:

  • Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council
  • Fingal County Council
  • Kildare County Council
  • Louth County Council
  • Meath County Council
  • South Dublin County Council
  • Wicklow County Council

Procurement staff from these eight councils have come together over the past few months and liaised with their budget holders, engineers, emergency services and decision makers and identified potential procurement opportunities coming up over the next 18-24 months under the following categories:

  • Corporate Services and Housing
  • Emergency Services
  • Roads, Transportation, Marine & General Service
  • Environment
  • Community, Sports, Arts and Recreation
  • Finance & ICT

They now want to meet with suppliers, new or existing, with tried and tested products or new innovative ideas, in these sectors, to see how they can deliver these services and ensure the invitation to tenders reflect the market place. The views of the market are important and this event represents an opportunity for participants to provide early input into contracting approaches and service delivery models. This is your opportunity to engage with the relevant people on the ground.

The event will provide attendees with the opportunity to:

  • Speak to Procurement staff from the councils to learn about procurement processes and existing tender opportunities.
