Subcontracting

 

There are a number of different ways in which subcontractors may locate work in the public sector, among which are: Contacting the winners of large-scale tenders through monitoring Contract Award procedures, and through marketing directly to successful suppliers for Government Framework Agreements.

 

A list of suppliers for current Government Frameworks can be found on OGCBuying.Solutions’ website at the following page;

Purchasing consortia and individual organisations frequently operate standing lists of suppliers which are used for identifying potential suppliers, and regularly advertise them requesting companies sign-up to be entered into a database of contacts. These are normally operated on a cyclic basis, but with companies offering their services over a 2-3 year time period. Standing lists may be promoted directly by specific government websites or advertised in the local or national press, as and when the agreements must be renewed.
