Procurement and Contracts

The aim of our procurement is to provide a professional and comprehensive service to all schools, using best practice to engage with external supply partners.

To maximise our resources, we are committed to ensuring best value is achieved when procuring all goods and services.

Information for Suppliers

The Trust is a contracting authority and is required to work within Public Contracting Procurement Regulations.

In accordance with the Trusts Procurement Policy, where possible, we will procure goods and service through Government approved Frameworks.

We advertise any contract opportunities with a value above £50,000.

Our current contract opportunities are available to view here.

To ensure we manage our supply base effectively, we only work with suppliers who are registered on In-Tend.

If you are interested in working for us, you can register for free on In-Tend here.

Once registered, you will be able to view any contract opportunities and receive alerts specific to your area of expertise.

The Trust recognises the benefit the social values act has on our community and we welcome interest from SMEs, local businesses and not for profit organisations.
