Are you an SME looking to tender for Council services? - The Council uses the Supply Hertfordshire procurement portal for all tender opportunities. This portal provides details of tender opportunities and procurement policies. The portal also encourages Hertfordshire businesses to tender for public sector contracts across Hertfordshire. Procurement guidance to small and local businesses is provided on

We are working to be more business friendly. A key part of this is to make it easier for small businesses and local businesses to compete for Council contracts.

We are taking a number of actions to facilitate this including:

  • publishing and regularly updating a list of contract opportunities coming up using the contract register.
  • publishing tender opportunities online.
  • providing feedback, encouraging comments and offering other support to current and prospective suppliers.
  • Utilising the Supply Hertfordshire Toolkit to provide tailored guidance to small and local businesses.
