Tender documents & process

Most of the council's tenders follow a one-stage process, following the 2015 public procurement regulations.

Our tenders are run through the eu supply e-procurement site.

We ask anyone interested to register their interest online - you will then be able to download the tender documents.

These will ask some preliminary questions to make sure that you are in a position to reliably deliver the goods or service required.  We need to look at your:

  • finances
  • experience & technical ability
  • health & safety
  • quality assurance
  • inclusion & diversity
  • sustainability
  • references

Then there is a specification of what is required and you will be asked how you will deliver the goods or services we are seeking and what prices you will charge.

The document includes our standard terms & conditions for the contract.

The completed forms are evaluated and the winning bidder is awarded the contract.
