North East Lincolnshire Council are aware there is a perception that public procurement can be bureaucratic and difficult to navigate but we are unsure what the particular barriers or issues are. However we are committed to improving our processes so that they evolve and are easier to access and use for both commissioners and suppliers.
They are therefore seeking feedback from local suppliers, in particular the VCS and wanted to ask about their experiences of tendering for contracts with North East Lincolnshire Council and accessing the local authority’s e-tendering system (YORtender).
NELC are also looking for volunteers to try out their new online supplier questionnaire on YORtender to ascertain whether tender documentation is easier and simpler to complete on-line rather than the current process of downloading documentation.
To feedback and/or volunteer could you e-mail email@example.com please by the 27 March ’20.
