We recognise that it can be difficult to compete successfully for public sector contracts. Potential suppliers often do not understand all the rules, so we are working towards providing all the information you need in order to gain a better understanding of the process.
When goods and services fall below the requirement in value to tender (£50,000), quotations will be requested and accepted from potential suppliers.
Buckinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service undertakes a comprehensive tendering process in order to ensure that best value is achieved from all the money that is spent. It is also required to comply with the law and internal standing orders as to contracts, and to protect its interests.
Guidance notes showing how to complete a tender from start to finish will be added here shortly.
