City of London Procurement Strategy (330KB)  

Tendering opportunities and how to become a supplier

​We advertise tender opportunities through the London Tenders Portal. Please register on the 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.

Current and future procurement opportunities

​The following are the current and future procurements that suppliers will have the opportunity to tender for that are facilitated by the City Procurement team, inclusive of other low value procurements (less than £100k Total Contract Value) that are undertaken by our Buyers directly, due to operational demands and therefore may not be included in this list. Due to changing Corporation requirements there is no guarantee that these procurements will happen if they are currently in planning stage. The report below will be updated at the beginning of each calendar month.

Procurement rules and regulations

​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.

Terms and conditions

​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.

Sustainable procurement

​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.
