Our objective is to secure the best value for money whilst seeking to create opportunities to help companies and boost employment.

We use e-tendering as our primary system to manage  tenders and quotations.

Any company wishing to be considered for supplying to us, must register on the e-tendering portal - The Chest.

Suppliers only need to register once and this is free of charge. From here you can also browse our current opportunities
