Selling to Southwark

To create more contract oppportunities and to help businesses supplying to us, we take the following actions:

  • we electronically publish full details and contract documents for all advertised contract opportunities being run through our eProcurement system; suppliers can register free-of-charge to receive details of relevant contract opportunities from Southwark and 22 other London boroughs using the system via the London Portal
  • we publish contract opportunities and details of contracts award over a value of £25,000 on the Contracts Finder
  • we offer suppliers free registration for contract opportunities via Southwark’s eProcurement Portal ; suppliers receive e-mail alerts when opportunities are posted that match their specific category (either from Southwark or any London boroughs who use the system)
  • for relevant procurements, we may advertise opportunities in local press outlets, trade journals or on their own websites
Contracts are based on evaluation criteria that offer us best value

Contracts register

Our contracts register provides details of our significant current contracts for goods, works and services. It's reviewed and updated on a quarterly basis.

The following details are publicly available:

  • name of contract
  • contract description
  • lead contract officer (contact for the contract)
  • supplier name
  • contract values 
  • contract start date

The contract register is published by Due North and can help identify future tender opportunities. For specific contract and procurement information, contact the lead contract officer.

We're committed to publishing details of our expenditure on works, goods and services. For further information, visit our Open data page.

Approved list of building contractors and consultants
