Please could you reply directly via emailing explaining the following:
|< £4,999.99 (including VAT)||Informal Quotations|
|<£5,000 - £14,999 (including VAT)||3 Formal Written Quotations|
|< £14,999 (including VAT)||Formal Tender via the Procurement office / DPS / Framework|
Please could you also tell me how you advertise and procure your procurement, eg Contracts Finder and In-Tend.
Purchases of less than £5,000 do not require competitive quotes.
£5,000 - <£10,000 require at least two competitive written quotes.
£10,000 - <£25,000 require a minimum of three competitive written quotes.
£25,000 - <£60,000 require a minimum of four competitive written quotes.
For purchases estimated to be £25,000 or more but below EU threshold the use of The North West Chest is considered best practice.
The exception to the above is where use is made of a framework.
Opportunities on The Chest are also advertised on the Contract Finder.
Further details of our Procurement Rules can be found in our Constitution, section 4, article H (starting on page 249).
