The council's tender opportunities are now managed on our e-sourcing solution system, In-Tend. It is recommended that you read the Frequently Asked Questions attached below before you access the system for the first time.
The system is fully web-based and is used to advertise requirements for services, goods and works sought by us and to allow suppliers to express an interest in such opportunities. The system provides for the secure transfer of documents between the council and our suppliers during the tender process. This includes evaluation of Suitability Assessment Questionnaires, short-listing of suppliers, evaluation of tender returns and contract award. The system is also used for smaller value, less complex quotation exercises.
Companies should register on the In-Tend site to ensure that any future business opportunities are not missed. Registration on the site is completely free:
It is important when registering on the system that you allocate your organisation to a business category appropriate to its competencies. We have also prepared a 'frequently asked questions' document attached below. It contains important additional information on the system and how we are proposing to use it.
In additional to this system we will continue to advertise on OJEU.
