Electronic tendering with the chest

The Chest is an eTendering portal which has been created to give suppliers easier access to more local authority business.

So how do suppliers use it?

Just register for free on The Chest and search for suitable contract opportunities that have been placed there by the region's councils.

You can submit your tenders electronically.

For suppliers this has a number of advantages:

  • You can access the tender documents on-line, 24 hours a day - whenever it's convenient 
  • You can widen your potential for business opportunities, many local authorities are switching to on-line procurement processes and, therefore, suppliers who register on The Chest will be at a significant advantage to their competitors
  • You can widen your potential markets and do business with a host of public sector organisations across the region

Select the Register FREE option in the navigation panel on the left hand side of the screen and fill in the on-line forms.
