How to Tender Guide

List of Main External Frameworks Used

  • Welsh Government’s National Procurement Service (NPS)
  • Crown Commercial Services Framework (CCS)
  • East Shires Purchasing Organisation (ESPO)
  • The Procurement Partnership (TPPL)

All Procurement opportunities offered by Welsh Government are also published on Sell2Wales (opens in new tab).

Individual Service areas of the Council may also use the Sell2Wales website for quotation exercises and to search potential suppliers for any opportunities they have below £25k.

Sell2Wales is the National Procurement website for Welsh Public Sector Organisations where contract opportunities are advertised. Opportunities advertised here will provide details of the requirement and how you can participate in the tender process. Sell2Wales also has a direct link to the UK wide Find a Tender Service where above threshold contracts, as set out in the Public Contract Regulations 2015 must be published.

The Council encourages all suppliers to register on the Sell2Wales website. This is free of charge and allows suppliers to create, update and maintain their profile, view opportunities, receive automated tender notifications by email, receive instructions on how to access tender documents and view details of awarded contracts. Registration onSell2Wales will also enable you to view a number of opportunities advertised by a large number of other public sector organisations in Wales. It is important to register on Sell2Wales against the categories which are relevant to the goods, services or works you supply. This will ensure that you only have notifications about contract opportunities relevant to you and also that you do not miss out on any key notifications.

Tip: It is also worth periodically checking directly on the Sell2Wales website just in case the opportunities advertised have not matched the categories that you have registered against.

The Council undertakes all of its formal tender opportunities electronically and currently uses the Bravo e-tenderwales (opens in new tab) portal to do this.
