Find out how your business can become a supplier and when we tender for contracts.
We use an electronic tendering platform for all formal tendering requirements. The use of e-tendering is our preferred method of advertising and managing our contracting opportunities.
All current and potential suppliers interested in tendering for our business are encouraged to take time to register, free of charge, on the e-tendering platform.
Once you have registered you will receive automatic notification of any tenders advertised by us and other participating local authorities. You will only be able to bid for our contracts through the Supplying the South West website.
Tenders with a value that exceeds the current EU threshold will also be advertised in the Offical Journal of the European Community.
Opportunities for your business to provide goods and or services to the wider public sector can be found on GOV.UK along with an explanation of the various procurement processes and information relating to rules.
Before you invest time into tendering, try our Supplier Capability Tool to help assess how ready your business is to tender for public sector contracts.
