Description

National Highways is inviting organisations to apply to the Social Enterprise Dynamic Purchasing System (SEDPS) to provide Goods and/or Services to National Highways, our Supply Chain and other Government departments across England.

The SEDPS is available to organisations with primarily social objectives whose surpluses are principally reinvested for that purpose in the business or in the community, rather than being driven by the need to maximise profit for shareholders and owners. We have enabled this DPS to allow our supply chain and other government departments to procure the Goods and/or Services that these organisations offer. The use of the SEDPS is to further National Highways' commitment to social value, in support of National Highways Social Value Plan. A link to the plan can be found below.

Applications will open on the 14th August 2023. If you are interested in applying to join the SEDPS or would like further information, please contact the National Highways Procurement Team at socialenterprisedps@nationalhighways.co.uk or visit our webpage below.

Complete Tender Coverage

Following Brexit, the new official Find a Tender system has been developed by UK Government to detail all public procurement contract opportunities expected to be over £122, 976 for Central Government or £189,330 for the remainder of the public sector e.g. NHS contracts, Local Authority contracts, Housing Association contracts. Publishing requirements for all of the public sector are in place to ensure transparency, fairness and open competition.

All UK public sector opportunities under these values, but over £10,000 for central government or over £25,000 for other public sector organisations, are still required to be published on Contracts Finder. Scotland, Wales and NI also have their own dedicated sites: Public Contracts Scotland, Sell2Wales, eSourcing NI and eTendersNI.

Complete Tenders have centralised and consolidated all of this information into a single, easy to use platform that is updated hourly with all new opportunities.
