The advert or contract notice will provide you with an overview of the timeframes and importantly your deadline to submit. It will also provide you with instructions on how to access the tender documents or express an interest in the opportunity.

If you are successful you are then an approved supplier for the ESPO Security and Surveillance Equipment Framework! It is important to engage with ESPO as much as possible so you fully understand how the ‘call off’ or mini competitions will work – ultimately how you then win specific contracts from specific public sector buyers. Typically, this would be a buyer approaching ESPO with a security systems requirement. ESPO then produce a mini competition – a specific tender for the works, which is sent out only to the awarded suppliers on that particular lot. It will include quality and price again but is designed to be quicker, as you have already been approved.
