Seminar provided guidance on bidding process

A seminar that provided inside information on how to successfully respond to government tenders was attended by more than 30 people.

It featured representatives from the Bermuda Housing Corporation, the Ministry of Public Works, and the Department of Public Lands and Buildings.

The event was sponsored by the Bermuda Economic Development Corporation.

Vicki Medeiros, property officer for the BHC, spoke about opportunities that exist for individuals. She advised that the corporation has more than 300 properties that it manages which require maintenance and that there are many opportunities to submit applications for these maintenance jobs.

While Stephen Tucker, of the Ministry of Public Works, encouraged attendees to utilise the BEDC as a resource to assist with responding to tenders. He indicated that it is important to complete the bids correctly to increase chances of success.

Sudell Joseph, senior estates surveyor for the Department of Public Lands and Buildings, talked about beach concessions and what is required when responding to a tender. She also discussed the various opportunities that exist for concessions relating to arable land as well as potential property for sale.

The seminar was held at the Bermuda Industrial Union last Thursday.

Erica Smith, executive director of the BEDC, said that one attendee had later commented: “As a result of attending this seminar I will check the BEDC website regularly for opportunities and would encourage others to do the same.”
