Suppliers can find out about and apply for Council business through:
All our tender opportunities over £5,000 are advertised on a web-based system called YORtender. Suppliers registered on YORtender can view, download, complete and return their tenders to us electronically.
We may also use YORtender to select suppliers to provide us with quotations.
It is a free service and anyone with internet access and an email address can register and use it. Many local authorities and other public sector organisations in the Yorkshire and Humber region advertise tender opportunities on YORtender.
We strongly recommend that any supplier wanting to do business with the Council registers on YORtender and is set up to receive automatic electronic ‘alerts’ when future tender opportunities are advertised in the categories they are interested in.
A summary of the Prior Information Notices (PINS) published by the Council on OJEU is available below.
If the total value of what we want to buy through one tender is above the EU threshold it will be advertised on YORtender but we must also advertise it on OJEU.
OJEU is accessed via http://ted.europa.eu
We would also recommend that suppliers ensure they are set up for electronic tender alerts on OJEU.
From time to time we invite the market to talk to us about specific service solutions and potential new areas of contracting. We do this by publishing soft market tests/market soundings through a Prior Information Notice (PIN) on OJEU.
Occasionally, we may place tender advertisements in the local press and/or relevant trade journals.
We already have many contracts with suppliers for a wide range of goods, works and services. Further information on these contracts is available on our Contracts Register.
