We are committed to being an open, accountable and transparent public authority and we publish details of contracts valued over £5,000 that we currently hold.
The Contracts Register is updated on a quarterly basis to provide potential suppliers with a greater understanding of what we buy and when contracts are due for renewal.
We may “call-off” contracts from public sector Framework Agreements that contain pre-approved suppliers (the Fire Consortium and the Yorkshire Purchasing Organisation being two examples).
When we need to procure outside of Frameworks, we publish quotation and tender opportunities through the YORtender portal (www.yortender.co.uk) which is free for suppliers to register and use. Registered suppliers can set automatic alerts against types of contract opportunities they are interested in monitoring.
