Procurement

The £1.13 billion City Deal programme will involve the procurement of a whole host of goods and services

At tier one level this will include roads, bridges and improved transport infrastructure, quay walls, remediation, construction, public realm works, design and architectural consulting services, legal services, professional services – assisting further capital developments for housing, retail and commercial.

Projects will be delivered over a twenty year period, although it is anticipated that the majority of procurement and construction activity will be completed within the first ten years. Beyond that, further procurement will be delivered through new land sites realised through the programme. As yet, the detail around this has not been established.

The Glasgow City Region City Deal was also represented at the annual Meet the Buyer event in September 2017 at Hampden, attended by over 1,000 SMEs.

City Deal contract opportunities, where appropriate, will be advertised and awarded through Public Contracts Scotland. Register on the PCS website and select the City Deal category to receive automatic updates.

Our City Region Contracts Register sets out upcoming contracts, values and anticipated procurement timescales for City Deal projects. We are currently updating this to take account of changes to timescales resulting from Covid-19 impacts. The refreshed pipeline will be uploaded to the website in December 2020.

Contact details are provided at the bottom of each of the member authority areas – accessed under Partners.

Scottish SMEs and Third Sector organsations interested in bidding for and winning public sector contracts can access free training and support from the Supplier Development Programme.

Procurement Strategy and Supplier Guidance

The Glasgow City Region City Deal procurement strategy, is a new collaborative approach to procurement by the 8 member authorities. It confirms the partners’ commitment to working together under the umbrella of the City Deal Programme to explore and develop best practice strategies to allow us to procure the best, leading to better value and better opportunities for local business and residents and ultimately to assist in driving greater regional economic growth.

Sustainable Procurement Suppliers’ Guide has been developed to reflect the Glasgow City Region City Deal Procurement Strategy and Community Benefit Strategies.  This is intended as a single point of reference for suppliers to use in adopting and following a consistent, standard approach to City Deal contracts and in delivering City Deal community benefit outcomes for all eight Glasgow City Region member authorities.

The guidance aims to support tenderers to offer and deliver community benefits and sustainable outcomes across City Deal contracts from the Community Benefit Menu available within Appendix A of the document.
