Our annual budget is approximately £200m, a substantial proportion of which is spent on buying goods, services and works that support the delivery of services to the local community. Purchases range from office stationery to major construction projects.

We have a duty to seek best value and continuous improvement in the services we provide and we are committed to getting value for money from procurement.

Contracts and tenders

We do not hold an approved suppliers list.

Our contracts register and tendering opportunities are available at the London Tenders Portal.

Suppliers can register for ProContract free at the London Tenders Portal and apply for any of our tenders, subject to status. This portal is also used by 18 other London Boroughs.

During the initial registration, you will be required to choose which category you are interested in supplying.  When an opportunity is published within that category, an email will be sent advising you that a new opportunity is available.

Where applicable, tenders are also advertised using the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU). We are also registered with the government's Contract Finder portal.

If you are having any difficulties using the portal, please visit the PROACTIS ProContract V3 Help Desk or call 0330  005 0352.

Public tenders exceeding the EU procurement threshold can be found in the Tenders Electronic Daily (TED).
