We aim to secure value for money. This means balancing quality and costs over the lifetime of a purchase.
We like to work with our suppliers:
The type, value and complexity of a contract helps us to decide what the tender process should be. We provide all the necessary information for the procurement process. Then we give suppliers enough time to prepare their bid.
For large value or complicated contracts we encourage suppliers to work in partnership. Collaborative bids help suppliers increase the chance of winning work.
When possible, we want to work with local and Welsh suppliers. We hope this will increase local business, develop skills and bring other community benefits.
Deciding contracts normally follow these competition rules:
We advertise most of our contract opportunities on Sell2Wales.
We are also signed up to the National Procurement Service.
This helps us access a number of frameworks to find the best available deals.
If you would like more information or help to bid please contact our Procurement Officer email@example.com 029 2078 0609.
