Information about selling to Fenland District Council and current tenders.
Procurement and Purchasing
Interested in selling to the council? Find out about our Procurement Strategy, current tenders and most recent suppliers list.
"Procurement" is the process of acquiring goods, works and services - both from third parties and in-house providers. The process starts with identifying needs, through to the end of a services contract or useful life on an asset. Part of the process is to consider what options are available and the critical 'make or buy' decision.
Our Procurement Policy
Our Code of Procurement 2015 [116kb] explains how we intend to procure the Council's goods, works and service over the next three years. It also explains the rules we follow for procurement transparency.
There is also a National Strategy for Local Government Procurement. This is available on the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister website.
We do not endorse companies that undertake private work. If you receive communications from a company that claim to be endorsed by Fenland District Council please contact our procurement team.
We only use Constructionline as an approved list for construction related works. They detail construction contracts ranging from £10,000 to EU threshold.
Our suppliers are monitored throughout their contract period and are subject to performance reviews. They must ensure that the quality and performance stated in the tender documents are maintained (or improved) throughout the contract period.
The Council's Contract Manager will be notified when the supplier's performance does not meet required levels. These will be recorded for future contract reviews (unless the incident is serious enough to require immediate action. Examples of these include:
- Failure to deliver in accordance with the specification of the tender documents and end user
- Poor administration of the contract e.g inability to invoice at the contract rates
- Inability to supply monitoring information when requested
