Council contracts and tenders
Suppliers and contractors can find out about current council tenders and contracts in several ways.
- Write in response to an advert in the press or the Find a Tender (FTS) service.
- Register free of charge on the council's e-procurement portal via Proactis - Supplier Network.
- Refer to Source Derbyshire and / or the Governments contracts finder system.
Council tenders and contracts may also be advertised in various publications, such as:
- Find a Tender service (GOV.UK
- the trade press
- the local papers
The intention is to give existing and potential contractors and suppliers the opportunity to do business with the council. All council tenders will provide necessary details as in Tendering for Contracts.
The council is also proactively looking at electronic tendering to allow companies to submit both pre-questionnaires and tenders electronically. Regretfully, we cannot currently accept electronic tender document submissions.
