Procurement

Our procurement policy and procedures adhere to public sector procurement rules and regulations.

We endeavour to be fair, open and honest when obtaining quotations or tendering for contracts. Tendering opportunities can be found on this site here. Otherwise, tenders for contracts above the EU Procurement Threshold can be found through the Tenders Electronic Daily website.

Lower Value Tenders

If a contract is below the EU Procurement Threshold of £172,514 (€207,000), we will undertake either a quotation or tender exercise. Quotations will be requested for contracts below £15,000 per year with up to three quotations obtained depending upon the value of the contract. Tender exercises are usually undertaken for contracts above £15,000 per annum with contracts usually awarded for up to three years with the inclusion of an extension option.

Become a Supplier

Organisations looking to supply us should visit this website on a regular basis for all the latest opportunities. Due to the sheer number of responses we receive, we do not maintain a database of suppliers to be notified when contracts are due for renewal.  A copy of our Standard Terms and Conditions of Purchase is available for download here. Any supplier that works with us is expected to do so under these terms. Alternatively, if you would like to be considered as a supplier for Echo Arena in future, please fill in this form.

For organisations looking to supply us, you can find current tender opportunities here. For tenders above the EU Procurement Threshold, please visit the website Tenders Electronic Daily website.
