Major Source for Finding West Bengal Tenders
An entrepreneur can find West Bengal tenders in the local newspapers, electronic media, bulletin boards, notice boards of different public works offices like the PWD and R&B, RD, Water Resources, Housing and Urban Development, and various town planning and development authorities and local self government offices. Besides these development works, quite substantial number of tenders are also floated by different offices for procurement of essential stores and stationeries for smoothly running their works.
Different Levels in Public Sector
Usually there would be global, national, provincial, and local West Bengal tenders that an entrepreneur would come across. Global tenders are the ones that do not have any geographical barriers installed for bidding by aspirant bidders. In national level tenders, different agencies from around the country can bid and compete to win the tender. However, in case of provincial and local tenders, the areas are confined to the state and usually the district concerned. With such differences, the tenders are floated by different authorities and different levels in public sector.
While the global and international tenders are both floated from the heads of departments in the capital city of Calcutta, other provincial and local tenders are floated from the zonal authorities, district authorities, and at the lowest level block level authorities. For instance the different levels in case of tenders relating to road construction works could be –
- Chief Engineer, Roads and Buildings for the global and national tenders.
- Superintending Engineer, R & B concerned for the zonal and provincial tenders.
- Executive Engineer, R & B at the district level for local tenders.
Substantial Scope in Private Sector
It does not mean that there are no West Bengal tenders in the private sectors. On the contrary private sector offers substantial scope for such tenders as well. Since the state has been developed as an industrial, educational, transportation, sports, arts, and culture over the centuries, numerous tenders are floated from each of these areas in the private sector as well and on most occasions, they are easier to respond and more profitable in comparison to the public sector tenders because they do not have all the procedural hazards related to their public sector counterparts.
Just take care of building up a good reputation and responding to the West Bengal tenders perfectly to win them and promote your business substantially in the bargain.
