All purchasing carried out by the South Downs National Park Authority is subject to our Contract Standing Orders.
The purpose of these Contract Standing Orders is to provide a structure within which purchasing decisions are made and implemented.
This is to ensure that the South Downs National Park Authority uses its resources efficiently, purchases quality goods, services and works and safeguards its reputation from any implication of dishonesty or corruption.
Current Tendering Opportunities
SDNPA uses an electronic sourcing portal to manage all tendering and quotation exercises and current contract opportunities can be viewed at https://in-tendhost.co.uk/southdowns.
In order to view the full documents available it is necessary to register with the portal. Registration is free and only has to be done once.
We advertise all opportunities for contracts over £25,000 on the Government Contracts Finder website, and high value opportunities over current World Trade Organisation Agreement on Government Procurement (GPA) thresholds on the Find a Tender website.
Future Tendering Opportunities
The procurement team gathers information on forthcoming tendering opportunities from colleagues on an on-going basis. These are also published on our sourcing portal, Intend. Any future opportunities can be found by selecting “Forthcoming Tenders” from the “Tenders” tab.
