Procurement, tendering and contracts
Open tender, special list or European Union procurement are used as part of our contract management process when buying goods and services of £60,000 or more.
We procure a wide range of products and services from external suppliers through contracts. For details, see our contracts register.
Authorities across Cumbria have got together to buy goods and services together to get value for money.
Procurement is the buying of goods, works and services; everything from the purchase of consumables to the acquisition of strategic services.
Formal tenders are sought for orders over £60,000. If you would like to tender, please register with 'The Chest', the e-Procurement portal.
If you think you can sell or supply goods and services that we may be interested in, please register free of charge on The Chest.
