All our tenders and tender opportunities are advertised here on the ProContract system.
We now use E-procurement to buy the vast majority of our goods, works and services rather than a paper based system.
All elements of the transaction from the initial ordering to the invoicing and payment can be carried out electronically via email, fax and web in order to streamline processes and reduce costs.
The system we, and councils across the North East, use to advertise contracts and invite/receive tenders is ProContract.
In some cases we also advertise in relevant journals/publications. Tenders over the EU thresholds will additionally be advertised in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU).
