Procurement Pipeline

Our Procurement Pipeline contains details of contracts expected to be re-procured and new procurement projects that are expected to be undertaken.

Please bear in mind the following:

  • the likelihood of being re-procured or timescale for re-procurement may change from this forecast
  • rows with a Contract Reference Number beginning with DN are existing contracts that are expected to be re-procured at the end of their term 
  • rows without a Contract Reference Number are newly identified procurement projects that are expected to be undertaken
  • for opportunities with a whole life value under £100k, we will invite quotes from a limited number of suppliers
  • for all opportunities, you will need to register on the council's tendering website portal, The Chest
  • whether or not to use a framework is made on a case-by-case basis at the start of the re-tendering process
  • we make use of framework agreements where appropriate, as these are a cost-effective route to procure goods and services in common use
  • framework agreements are tendered by other organisations such as Crown Commercial Services or ESPO 
  • our Procurement Pipeline will include contracts to be considered to be renewable and will be updated on a quarterly basis
