Expressions of interest and current tenders
PPCS uses an e-tendering portal (hosted by In-Tend) to manage its procurement processes. You will need to register on the portal before you can express an interest in any opportunities and view the associated tender documents.
Many suppliers have existing accounts which they may not have access to. Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org if you think you might have an existing account and would like to be added to it rather than creating a new account.
Registering on the PPCS e-tendering portal does not mean you are a supplier to UK Parliament or either House (Commons or Lords).
This page lists opportunities which are currently being openly advertised. Tenders advertised on this page will always be advertised on Contracts Finder and on Ted/FTS when the contract value is above the relevant threshold as set out in the Public Contract Regulations. Suppliers must be logged in to the portal in order to express their interest in a tender and view the tender documents available.
Not all tenders are required to be advertised openly via Contracts Finder and/or FTS. This might be because the tender is below a certain value or a competitive tendering process is being run via a Framework Agreement. PPCS utilises both internal (established by PPCS) and external (established by another body such as the Crown Commercial Service) framework agreements. This enables us to let value for money contracts in an efficient manner and in line with the Public Contract Regulations.
Companies who are interested in bidding for UK Parliament contracts should monitor Contracts Finder and FTS notices for opportunities. Promotional e-mails received by PPCS will be passed on to a specific procurement lead or department if they are deemed to be relevant.
