Current opportunities:

Updated: 17 July 2014

Whilst we are implementing our new e-tendering system, we will be continuing to advertise ESPO's opportunities via one or more of the following three websites.

The only way to ensure that you get to participate in a tender process to supply goods or services to ESPO is to regularly monitor ALL the above websites for information. We recommend you do this on a weekly basis to ensure you don't miss any opportunities. To ensure compliance with both EU and UK procurement legislation the majority of ESPO frameworks and contracts over a specified value are advertised to the entire market via these websites.

Once you have identified an opportunity you wish to tender for, you must request and complete the tender and return with all of the required documentation by the deadline identified in the advertisement and the tender. Our buying teams will evaluate all tenders received against the criteria outlined, make an award as appropriate and communicate the outcome to all tenderers.

E-tendering - the future

With effect from June 2014, we have started to carry out procurement on the e-tendering system. Suppliers can register their interest in specific areas of work, receive notifications about opportunities as they arise and submit their tender documentation and supporting information online via the e-tendering system. 

The target is that by the end of 2014, all opportunities to participate in an ESPO tender exercise will be conducted only through the e-tendering site.

Therefore it is important that suppliers register on  at the earliest opportunity - whilst continuing to monitor the other websites mentioned above.
