Please note that the Portal is currently being supported by two supply systems and you will need to register on to both. However the Authority is only using the Due North supported system at present to advertise its opportunities. Once all police and fire services have migrated over to the new EU Supply system the old Due North system will become obsolete, but in the meantime you will need an account on both sites to have access to any tenders carried out by any of the police and fire services. The contracting authority reserves the right at any time to cease this tendering process and not to award a contract.
