Selling to the Council

How the council advertises contract opportunities

The Council uses a Central Government contracts portal to advertise its contract opportunities. This is a free service for business and enables business to register and receive email alerts whenever an appropriate opportunity is advertised.

Tenders are also advertised on our website.

We also advertise through specialist and local media outlets and notify the Wandsworth Chamber of Commerce of forthcoming tenders.
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.

For construction works the Council uses 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 £172, 514.

Where the anticipated expenditure is likely to exceed these financial thresholds, the Council 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.
