In order to engage with Bath and North East Somerset Council (and other South West Authorities), it is necessary for suppliers to register, for free, on the South West Council's Contract Register & Opportunities Portal via www.supplyingthesouthwest.org.uk.
Once registered, you will be sent an e-mail alert based on your specified areas of interest, whenever relevant contracts are advertised allowing you to decide whether or not to express interest.
The portal should be used for all procurement opportunities over £500 but is mandatory for all contracts with a value in excess of £50,000.
The Portal is designed to be this Council's central register of all let contracts and provides a listing of all potential contract opportunities.
Please note that some departments within the Council work with pre-approved supplier lists in conjunction with the South West Portal.
