The City of London Corporation have introduced a new portal called capitalEsourcing for all new tender opportunities. This is a phased implementation plan with all new tender opportunities being advertised on capitalEsourcing. Existing tender opportunities (prior to the 2nd of April 2015) are still advertised on the London Tender portal. Please register on the capitalEsourcing portal if you are interested in supplying the City of London.
We also purchase off public framework agreements, for example from the LCSG (London Contracts Supplies Group) or CCS (Crown Commercial Service).
You can visit our How to become a City of London supplier page for more details and occasional soft market engagement announcements. Additional info can also be found on Useful links for contract opportunities page.
The list of upcoming tender opportunities can now be found as the last link in the left hand navigation 'Forthcoming tender opportunities: April 2015'.
The City of London operates a combination of devolved and centralised procurement. There is a range of commonly used goods and services which are procured through contracts set up centrally. Our contract lists page includes a list of corporate contracts and departmental contact details.
In its capacity as local authority, there are regulations at a European, national and local level which the City of London has to comply with when procuring goods, services and works. This page also includes details of relevant procurement thresholds.
Our Terms and conditions page contains a wide range of downloadable Terms and Conditions covering a wide range of value and nature of contracts, including those specifically designed to suit the small and medium-sized enterprises applicable to contracts under the value of £250k.
We have a strong commitment to our environment and our diverse communities, both within the Square Mile and the deprived boroughs surrounding the City. Our sustainable procurement page contains supplier guidance, details on how the City of London supports local purchasing and employment in order to stimulate the economies of our neighbouring boroughs, details about the Considerate Contractor Scheme and information about how we support businesses and communities.
If you have any comments on these procurement pages or suggestions as to how we can improve them please contact the City Procurement on 020 7332 1180.
