Tender reports

The University of Nottingham’s Procurement Department place contracts with suppliers who offer the best value for money with high levels of service, quality and delivery.  Whenever possible we contract under collaborative framework agreements, either Government Procurement Service, HE consortium or other Public Sector bodies such as YPO/ESPO.

We also make full use of a number of local collaborative working arrangements and procurement ‘hubs’ such as the SUPC agreements, to ensure we are constantly seeking best value.

The HE Sector, in common with other public sector organisations and government departments, must meet the requirements of EU public procurement directives which ensure open and fair competition. Under these directives, we must advertise all contracts with a value over £173,934 (for supplies and services) or £4,348,350 (for works) in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU). These adverts enable suppliers to express an interest in the majority of our contracts. 

Suppliers can view a list of current/forthcoming tender opportunities via the following link on our website: here you can register interest in contracts and apply online.

The University of Nottingham has a policy of ensuring companies which tender for contracts meet agreed Equality and Diversity standards.
