Selling to the Council
How we advertise contract opportunities
Where the anticipated value of the contract equal or exceeds the EU procurement thresholds (including aggregation requirements), notices are placed in the Official Journal of the European Union (Tender Direct website) and appropriate forms of media.
Evaluation of tenders is directly linked to the shortlisting/contract award criteria specified within the original advert and/or within the tender documents. Under no circumstances may a tender be evaluated on issues other than those listed within the advertisement or tender documents.
For construction works we use Constructionline for all projects up to £1.5 million and for construction related consultants where the likely cost will not exceed the EU limit for Services of £181,302.
Where the anticipated expenditure is likely to exceed these financial thresholds, we will formally advertise for expressions of interest.
Constructionline is the UK's register of pre-qualified local and national construction and construction-related contractors and consultants.
