Tender Opportunities - Digital Growth Programme

East Midlands Chamber (Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire) is a delivery partner for the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF)-funded Digital Growth Programmes across all three counties.

The aim of the programmes, which run until June 2019, is to offer bespoke and structured support to encourage organisations with real growth aspirations to explore and introduce new and emerging digital technology-based business models to drive performance.

In order to fulfil the goals of the programmes, East Midlands Chamber is looking to appoint a network of consultants with demonstrable expertise and skills to lead on development and delivery of a series of digitally themed seminars and workshops and to provide one-to-one business support.

To ensure that these activities are delivered by high calibre, experienced providers and to meet with ERDF procurement law, a number of tender opportunities have been created. The tenders are detailed below. 
Please Note: There are two distinct Digital Growth Programmes detailed below (D2N2 programme and the Leicester and Leicestershire programme). Suppliers looking to tender for the same theme in both programmes are required to submit seperate tenders.
