The Procurement People

The Procurement People are a team of professional procurement advisors employed by North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire councils.  We work together to procure products and services for both councils.  Benefits of working together include:

  • Increased buying power means increased value for money
  • Sharing of ideas and knowledge across the councils
  • Greater procurement expertise and skills

Further information

There may be opportunities for your business to provide goods or services to the public sector, either through a direct contract or by becoming a subcontractor.

Buy4NorthernLincolnshire is an initiative by public and third sector organisations in North and North East Lincolnshire to promote contract opportunities and helpful information to interested businesses.

The procurement team publish planned procurements on an annual basis across all departments.

North Lincolnshire Council uses an electronic tendering system called ‘YORtender’ to procure works, services and supplies.  All unrestricted opportunities over £5,000 in value are advertised using this system. YORtender is web-based, so can be accessed from any computer and it is free for you to register. Guidance on how to register can be found on the YORtender website.

Contracts awarded over £5,000 can be viewed monthly.  Alternatively this information is available via the YOR Tender Contracts Store.

The Officer decisions page details the decisions taken by officers of the council which must be published in accordance with data transparency legislation.

All council orders are subject to standard terms and condition.  These will apply unless a formal contract arrangement is in place.

If you are a provider (or potential provider) of contracted services to or on behalf of the council please contact us to:

  • report concerns
  • request information
  • suggest new or innovative approaches to improve service delivery
  • give feedback about procured services
