How To Find & Win Blue Light Tenders: Simply Explained
With billions of pounds spent within our emergency services each year; covering the police service, fire service and emergency medical services, achieving value for money and longevity of investment presents existing and new suppliers huge opportunities.
As the government strives to work with a diverse supply chain, if you supply products, works or services into the police, fire or rescue services, you should read on to find out how you can find and win blue light tenders.
How To Find Blue Light Tenders
The Blue Light Procurement Database (BLPD) was set up to make it easier for bidders to find and access tender information for the police, fire & rescue services.
Here, you can view the full contracts register and contract awards list, including supplier and buyer details, as well as contract renewal dates. In the Blue Light Procurement Database, there are details of over 6,500 contracts, which gives the scale of the number of opportunities being bid for.
So, do you also want to bid for the latest blue light tenders? - To access and view the latest blue light tender opportunities, suppliers should register free to the Blue light e-tendering portal. This e-tendering portal is used to view, engage, obtain tender documents and submit blue light tenders.
Unlike Crown Commercial Services (CCS), who provide a full procurement solution, setting up compliant framework agreements for public sector buyers, the Blue light e-tendering portal provides a system for buyers or groups of buyers to run their tenders through it, and it will be the portal you will be submitting your proposal through.
