How to tender
If you wish to tender for a particular contract, you should refer to the instructions set out in the individual quotation and tender documents.
Please do not send unsolicited marketing material. We don’t consider this when conducting competitive procurement exercises.
In addition, Business Link (link opens in new window) provides guidance on how to quote or tender for public sector work.
The guidance gives advice on selling to the Government but local authorities are bound by the same procurement legislation and similar principles.
Business Link also provides a link to a free online training module called Winning the Contract (link opens in new window).
