Supplying the Council

The Council spends around £8m a year on Goods, Services and Works.

If you are a company looking to supply Maldon District Council, we would recommend you sign up to Contracts Finder and Delta E-Sourcing. Registration is quick and free and allows you access to the Council's opportunities as well as other public sector bodies.

The Council is also a member of the Procurement Alliance for Essex (PAE) where some 21 local authorities are members. The PAE supplier portal contains procurement information for all its members, so interested suppliers are able to see opportunities from the local authorities in one place.

Whilst registering with these sites is not a guarantee of success, it should provide you with the ability to be informed of relevant requirements, at the earliest opportunity.

All Tenders over £50,000 are advertised on Contracts Finder and Delta e-sourcing. Our Tender documents are published on Delta eSourcing allowing you open access to documents relevant to the procurement exercise and submit your response electronically.

We work with a range of suppliers in a fair, open, and transparent way and are committed to working with Local businesses. Please download our Guide to doing business with the Council for more information.
