THE TENDER PROCESS

All NHS business opportunities of a certain size have to be advertised with most having to go through a tender process. Potential suppliers are welcome to respond to any current SoEPS tender opportunities. Tender opportunities are published in line with the Public Contracts Regulations and can typically be found at the following locations:

TENDERS ELECTRONIC DAILY

Any current tender opportunities for ‘above OJEU threshold’ Part A Services are published via Tenders Electronic Daily (TED) which is the Supplement to the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) and is located at: http://ted.europa.eu/TED/main/HomePage.do

Current government tender opportunities (>£10,000) can also typically be found via ‘Contracts Finder’ at: https://online.contractsfinder.businesslink.gov.uk/ In addition to the above locations, SoEPS’s own current tender opportunities (and those of some of it’s member organisation) can also typically be found via SoEPS’s own e-tendering portal at: https://in-tendhost.co.uk/soepsprovider
