The Commercial Team conducts tenders to award contracts and framework agreements in order for goods, services and works to be supplied to the council and its partners. A tender is the process by which the council will assess submissions from providers in order to award contracts. A tender may take slightly different forms due to the contract spend and nature of the goods and services being procured. The tender documents will clearly state the process being used for each tender to assist your understanding of the process.
