Procurement processes

We spend around £4 million a year on goods, services and works providing firms of all sizes with a wide range of commercial opportunities. We seek to buy goods and services offering the best value for money to the tax payer and to purchase in line with legal requirements and government guidance.

We operate on the principle that there should be no barriers and no favours in awarding contracts and encourage businesses, both within the district and outside it, who believe they are qualified to supply the council with goods and services, to engage with us.

In most cases we will use competitive procurement processes to identify those tenders which offer the best value for money. We may conduct these processes ourselves, in conjunction with other local authorities, or we may use “framework agreements”. The council has produced a guide to help suppliers understand how the council procures goods and services.

Advertising contracts and preferred suppliers

In order to supply Tewkesbury Borough Council you must register online at:

Tewkesbury Borough Council uses an electronic procurement portal. Registered suppliers can view all current contracts and will receive notifications of contract opportunities and can register interest for future contracts.

Registration and use of the portal is completely free of charge, and your information can be updated as and when required.
