Local government could adopt united approach to overcome challenges of Brexit

Jan 06, 2017

Producing a competitive bid has never been more essential

The UK’s decision to leave the EU could spell uncertainty for many. Aside from the inevitable challenge Brexit poses to local authorities, it has been stated a collaborative approach could ease the tricky transition facing local governments. Whilst many remain sceptical following the government’s austerity agenda, collaboration could allow for a better understanding of the options available to local governments following the departure from the European Union. Local governments will now have to re-evaluate how they lobby to receive funding, which could in turn have consequences on procurement. Competition to supply to local governments, already fierce, is set to increase, with the need to choose the most efficient and reliable suppliers in these times of uncertainty. Producing a compelling and competitive bid is now even more crucial when aiming to secure work within local governments. With this in mind, many firms will turn to professional bid writers and managers to ensure their chances of success are vastly improved.
