Pacific Hwy tender workshop
THE Clarence Valley Council is helping local contractors interested in any opportunities the Pacific Highway upgrade might present, by partnering with TAFE to deliver a tendering and winning contracts workshop.
Mayor Richie Williamson said local contractors who wanted a piece of the Pacific Highway pie needed to attend this workshop.
"While the exact contracts are unknown, we do know there will be opportunity for local businesses," he said.
"Examples of opportunities this may present are; landscaping, cleaning, drainage, fencing, etc.
"A couple of hours of their time invested now will help decide if this is right for their business."
The workshop is to be presented by industry experts and will give an overview of how to prepare tender documents and the associated pre qualifications and compliance.
It will also gather information to determine further training to be conducted by TAFE.
The two-hour workshop will be held on Thursday, February 12, from 7am at Grafton TAFE.
Bookings are essential, so anyone interested should phone Elizabeth Fairweather in the council's economic development unit on 0428 285 037.
