How to find opportunities to sell to the council

UK Public Procurement is Changing

Procurement Act 2023

The Procurement Act 2023 received Royal Assent on 26 October 2023 and is expected to come into force in October 2024. For guidance see The Procurement Act 2023: A short guide for suppliers

Provider Selection Regime

The Provider Selection Regime (PSR) came into force on 1 January 2024. The London Borough of Harrow will now apply the PSR when procuring healthcare services. For guidance, see PSR Statutory guidance.

The London Tenders Portal

Our current contracts that are valued above £50,000 are listed on the London Tenders Portal (ProContract). This is an e-procurement system on which we advertise and manage the majority our tender opportunities. Organisations must register on the portal to receive notifications of any current opportunities.
