How to buy

Before using this agreement, you should read the customer guidance document.

Pre-market Engagement

Pre-market engagement is an essential step in any procurement activity and we recommend that you make sure there is enough time in your procurement project to carry it out.  It will help you to decide on the best route to market, refine your needs and will also increase the suppliers’ awareness and interest in your potential procurement.

Further competition

Further competitions can be run on all 7 lots.

You can use your own eSourcing system or you can use our eSourcing tool to run your further competition. If this is your first time using our eSourcing suite, you will need to register an account.

If you have already registered, sign in to your eSourcing account.

Read guidance about the eSourcing tool.

To run a further competition you will need to:

  1. take part in pre-market engagement with suppliers to help you define your needs (optional but recommended)
  2. identify the suppliers that can meet your needs and develop your specification
    • make sure your specification is detailed and includes timescales
  3.  complete your further competition documents, such as:
    • invitation to tender
    • evaluation criteria
    • draft order form
  4. invite all identified suppliers to submit a tender in writing (this could be by email or through your preferred e-Sourcing tool)
  5. set a time limit for the submission of tenders, (take into account the time needed to create and submit tenders and the complexity of your needs)
  6. keep each tender confidential until the time limit set out for the return of tenders has ended
  7. evaluate supplier responses (make sure you evaluate all suppliers equally and fairly)
  8. award your call-off contract by sending the following to the successful supplier:
