Tendering & Supply Chain Support

RiDO can work with companies in the borough to help access new business opportunities in a range of sectors via our partners and contacts. Please contact us to see how we can help your business to grow.

Working with the Council

RMBC works closely with all business sectors including small, medium enterprises (SMEs) and the voluntary sector as we try to remove barriers that may exist for such organisations to trade with us. We are removing barriers through providing organisations with access to information on our contracting opportunities, by explaining our procurement processes and by being flexible where possible.

To provide easy access to our current contract opportunities, the Council will regularly update this document with details of contracts up to 3 years in advance, to provide early information where possible to allow organisations to gear up to tender. As contract information is added as early as possible some information may not be available but contact details to obtain further information are provided. The Procurement Forward Plan will be updated on a monthly basis, however as the information contained within this plan is published to give providers an idea only of the Council's future requirements, the information is subject to change.

In addition, many contracts are also advertised on the YORTender system for the Yorkshire & Humber Region, which any organisation can register on.

More information can be found on the Council's website.

Partner Supply Chain Opportunities - SSE Open 4 Business Tender Portal 

In addition to local authority tendering, opportunities exist with some of the major utilities companies such as SSE, who run a dedicated portal for small and medium sized businesses called Open 4 Business Trans-Pennine. Further information can be found here.
