Business and tendering opportunities
Our Procurement Strategy puts community wealth and local benefit at the heart of our tendering process and ensures that there are opportunities for local businesses in the procurement of products and services.
Whilst cost and value are important factors, we cannot underestimate the economic benefits of making the very most of local skills and services. Economic, social and environmental factors will also be considered at all stages of the procurement cycle.
A key focus is to help drive competition and innovation across Mansfield, among a range of suppliers. In particular, supporting access to contract opportunities for small and medium sized enterprises, voluntary and community organisations and social enterprises.
How to become a supplier
Where possible, contracts under £50,000 are ring-fenced for businesses in the Mansfield district and surrounding areas.
We are developing a portal to make it easier for businesses to bid for opportunities that are under £50,000. In the meantime, to be added to our supplier list please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
For current opportunities above £50,000 please visit the EastMidsTenders portal (opens in new window).
We are fully committed to local transparency and as part of this we publish a register of all current contracts.
The register includes all contracts with commercial organisations that have a value above £5,001 and all contracts with voluntary or community groups that have a value above £1,001. This register will be updated as and when new contracts are agreed.

We are holding a free webinar, in partnership with East Midlands Chamber, which focuses on public procurement processes and seeks to boost the confidence of smaller organisations to tender for locally-available work.
On the day we aim to clarify the processes involved, showcase where the opportunities are to be found - including the support available - as well as to share some examples of best-practice.
