Contracting opportunities

Opportunities for selling to the council

We spend approximately £17 million each year buying goods and services. In spending that money, it is our duty to ensure value for money and a high standard of service.

We advertise the contracts of over £25,000 that we are currently tendering on the LGSS Procurement Portal. Here you can also find out about tendering opportunities with Cambridge City Council, Huntingdonshire District Council and Cambridgeshire County Council as well as a range of other organisations from across the country.

Once you are registered on the site, you can sign up to receive email updates on opportunities that match your areas of interest.

You can also look for our tender opportunities (above £25,000 and below the EU Procurement Thresholds) on Contracts Finder. This is a searchable database of all public sector tenders including national and local governments, the NHS and schools.

Our tenders for goods and services above the EU Procurement Threshold are advertised in the Official Journal of the European Union. At the point that the UK leaves the EU then we will advertise in the UK Government’s replacement journal.

We also use a number of consortiums to procure goods and services, for example ESPO and the Crown Commercial Service. Take a look at their websites to find out how you can become a registered supplier.

You may also interested in selling to Fenland District Council, East Cambridgeshire District Council and Peterborough City Council.

We recommend that you sign up to our business newsletter to hear about upcoming tender opportunities, procurement workshops and other business information and advice.

Please contact Sean Missin, Procurement Officer, if you have any queries about tendering for council contracts.

Please note that South Cambridgeshire District Council does not operate an approved supplier list.
