Tenders and contracts

Tamworth Borough Council spends in the region of £25m per year on a variety of goods and services.

These vary from small one–off purchases to large formally tendered contracts. Value for money is always a prime consideration and we actively encourage suppliers to contribute towards achieving this goal. Whether you are a small or large company, we are keen to hear about the goods and services you can provide.

Our General Conditions of Contract for Provision of Services and Provision of Supplies and Services can be viewed by the interested party here:

In line with Transparency Code we publish a Contract Register providing information on live contracts we have in place

This brief guide aims to provide suppliers with a basic overview of how they can compete for a share of TBC’s business.  

For purchases between £4K and £10K, we will usually request written quotes via our In-tend e-procurement website.  We also use this website to advertise our contract requirements for purchases anticipated to approach or exceed £10K and which may require a formal tendering process.  Depending on the value of a contract, the market size and perceived risk to the Council, suppliers may be requested to complete a Pre-Qualification Questionnaire (PQQ) prior to being evaluated for short listing to the tender process.

To view a list of any live quotes and tenders visit our In-tend webpage and click on ‘Current Tenders’. However, to access associated documentation, your organisation must be registered on the Tamworth In-tend system.  This only takes a few minutes and is required once only.  Other staff within the registering organisation can have their access rights added or removed as desired.

Once you have registered your company, an email confirmation and password will be forwarded to you. By logging on to the website, clicking on ‘Current Tenders’ from the ‘Tenders’ drop down menu you will be able to view all current live quote and tender opportunities.  If you find something of interest click on the ‘Express Interest’ button. You will almost immediately receive a confirmation e-mail informing you that documents relating to the selected opportunity are now available for you to view. The documents may now be viewed by clicking on the “My Tenders” button found in the “Tenders” drop down menu. Expressing an interest does not commit you to anything.

All communications relating to a requirement on the website that you are in the process of tendering for, must be conducted as correspondence via In-tend. There are more than 100 organisations across the UK advertising via In-tend. If you would like to see these other potential opportunities please visit In-tend.
