We spend over £70 million a year obtaining a range of supplies, services and works from the external market. We do this to ensure competition, openness, fairness and accountability. It is our duty to secure value for money in our commissioning and procurement activities.
Our Commissioning Procurement Strategy 2019-2024 (PDF 1MB) sets out how we intend to work with partners and suppliers to deliver good quality, value for money services, works and supplies. Our Commissioning and Procurement Standing Orders 2019-2024 (PDF 2MB) support the strategy.
Tendering for work
We advertise tenders on the Supply Hertfordshire e-tendering portal. You can download tender documents and submit correspondence about tenders on the portal. Suppliers must register to use the portal. You will receive alerts about relevant tenders from ourselves and other Hertfordshire authorities.For more information, please click on the headings below.
We have a wide range of supplies, services and works contracts in force at any one time. Our contract register details key contracts. We update and publish this every quarter.
