SME Gateway was established in 2003 to provide an effective ‘Prime (Tier 1) Organisation’ with project delivery capability, providing Australian SMEs real business opportunities, management support, mentoring and visibility. By directly delivering SME capability to Government and Industry, we remove the multi layer fee structure often associates with 'classic prime' operations, ensuring financial benefits to both Government/industry and the SME.
Our clients tell us the key reasons for continuing success in their relationship with SME Gateway are:
Simple and effective access;
Resources which are managed and monitored to ensure outcome delivery;
Access to a broad set of skills and resources through a single point of contact;
Established contract mechanisms allowing timely responsive engagement;
Integrity, ethical and open organisation which is 'easy to work with';
risk mitigation through multi source capability access; and
Assurance of all commercial requirements (insurances, governance, reporting and backup resources).
