Successful public sector tendering offers some solid, recurring income for creative agencies that have cracked the process, but many agencies consider them too time consuming, too price focussed or overly favouring incumbents.
That aside, there are many opportunities available over the €25,000 tender threshold and many more below that bought in a more informal way.
For anyone interested there are many companies that offer training and supports in this area.
