The trust undertakes various procurement activities. These include tenders that are compliant with EU Procurement Directives, UK Procurement Regulations, as well as category sourcing activities and offering wider commercial support to the organisation.
The trust advertises all its formal requirements through LYPFT’s e-tendering portal available by clicking here: e-Sourcing. Opportunities open to the wider European Marketplace will also be published in the Supplement to the Official Journal of the European Journal (OJEU).
The trust may participate in reverse e-Auctions either as part of the formal tendering process or as a pricing tool for shorter term pricing agreements on commodity items.
As part of the trusts corporate social responsibility commitments, the Procurement team wish to enable SME's to engage with the trust and the wider NHS by simplifying processes as much as possible. We recommend that all suppliers register with the Trusts' e-Sourcing system.
Potential suppliers can access information on existing contracts over £10k and any future opportunities that they may be of interested in. Interested parties should ensure they are registered on the trusts e-Sourcing portal, to ensure they are notified of any opportunities as they become available.
