What should I do now?
Familiarise yourself with the application process. This means checking out the tender documents and making sure you’ve got everything at hand to get applying. This is especially important for Lot 4 – which features a brand new application process different to Lots 1-3. So, if you’re wanting to get listed on this Lot, you’ll have to download the ITT and start checking through it to make sure you can meet the requirements.
Secondly, don’t wait around! Get started early on your listings to ensure you’ve got enough time to make them the best they can be. This is also important for those just relisting too. We always say that the change over between iterations is a perfect time to look at your service offerings and make sure your listings are compliant and buyable. Why weren’t you having success before? Are you coming up in valuable search results?
Lastly, ask for help if you need it. Getting to grips with frameworks like these can be hard. Here at Advice Cloud we offer support with getting listed on the G-Cloud framework. We also assist with making sure listings are airtight and perfect for buyers looking to procure.
