Doing Business with Government: Guide for SMEs

The Crown Commercial Service provides support for small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) that are bidding for public sector contracts. The government has made changes to help SMEs bid for public sector contracts. These include requiring the entire public sector supply chain to be paid within 30 days, buying in a simpler and quicker way (eg by abolishing pre-qualification questionnaires for low value public sector contracts) and requiring the public sector to publish its contracts on Contracts Finder.
