Tendering and Procurement
Information on how we purchase services, and how to register, stay up to date and respond to tenders.
CITB adopts a variety of sourcing approaches to meet our requirements and always seek to ensure we deliver best value for money. As a non-departmental public body CITB's engagement with suppliers is governed by Public Contracts Regulations 2015 and relevant EU legislation. CITB will trade under its own terms and conditions however, if we are procuring under a government framework, we will contract under the terms and conditions for that framework.
How we advertise
Unless there are mitigating reasons, all opportunities over £10,000 are advertised and managed through our electronic tendering portal called Delta E-Sourcing (which is provided by BIP Solutions Ltd). This portal provides a simple, secure and efficient method for managing the tender process reducing the time and effort required for both the Procurement, Commissioning and Contract Management (PCC) team and suppliers.
CITB does not have “approved” or “preferred” supplier lists as the PCC team strives to ensure it is open, fair and transparent in all its activity.
Register, stay up to date and respond to tenders
To make certain you do not miss any potential opportunities you need to ensure you are registered as a supplier. You can also receive updates on opportunities and respond to CITB tenders online.
- Register as a supplier for CITB and respond to tenders via the Delta eSourcing website
- Register for alerts from the Government’s Contracts Finder database or if relevent via the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU).
You can always contact us directly and we will be happy to help.
Reminder: IR35 requirement for all submissions
Before completing any relevant tender documentation please complete the online IR 35 checker. This will enable CITB to ascertain our obligations under the new IR35 regulations. Once completed, please forward CITB the results alongside your tender documents.
