We use an e-tendering portal to publish all current contract opportunities over £5K. The portal enables suppliers to attach themselves to any of our projects and express an interest without being an approved supplier.
Since April 2016 we have been working in partnership with Northamptonshire County Council and Cambridgeshire County Council as a shared service known as LGSS (www.lgss.co.uk) and are using a shared online e-tendering portal ProContract.
If you have not already done so please complete a quick registration process on ProContract to receive notifications and express interest in our tender opportunities. If you already have an existing supplier account registered with ProContract, please ensure you update the regions of interest settings (so you receive emails about new opportunities in the area specified) to include Milton Keynes (UKJ12) against any existing workgroups. If you are unsure how to update these settings, please speak to the helpdesk using the contact details below.
Please note, when advertising opportunities on ProContract the Authority uses CPV (Common Procurement Vocabulary) selections to notify potential providers. In order for you to receive opportunity alerts which are relevant to your organisation, please ensure you have the most appropriate CPV codes selected against any existing Workgroups within your profile.
There's no charge for registering and ProContract can be accessed via:
Procurement Portal (ProContract)
Please read ProContract User Guide (PDF, 987KB).
For technical/navigational queries about the portal you may contact ProContract by telephone on 0330 005 0352 (9am – 5:30pm Monday to Friday) or by email to ProContractSuppliers@proactis.com
