The LGA publishes details of contracts and tenders. This is in order to be transparent and to be open and accountable in the same way that is asked of our member councils.
The material published is a list of current contracts with a value of £10,000 or more as at the month of upload and includes the following information:
We are pleased to invite applications for the Approved Supplier List covering generic consultancy skills.
Please complete the pre-qualification questionnaire if you would like the LGA to assess your application to join the Approved Supplier List. The PQQ can be found on the LGA's e-procurement portal where you will need to register as a supplier and complete the forms:
Completed PQQs are to be returned via the e-procurement portal no later than:
5.00 pm Monday 17 June 2013.
If you have any questions about the PQQ, please contact us via the e-portal.
We are pleased to invite you to tender for the provision of the above requirement, which is required by the LGA.
Please read the instructions and information provided in the Invitation to Tender (ITT) on the tendering process carefully since failure to comply with them may invalidate your tender.
The completed sections and copies of tenders must be returned using the enclosed label marked 'Tender Documents Enclosed' to arrive by the time and date indicated in the ITT. The LGA is not bound to accept any late tenders.
The LGA will offer to purchase, in full or in part, the requirements, which offer the best value for money but it reserves the right to cancel the tendering process and/or not to award a contract.
LGA Ref No: LG-000386
Return date and time: Midday on 17 May 2013
Enquiries as to the process should be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org
The LGA invites expressions of interest from suitably experienced companies wishing to tender for a Document and Committee Management system which can place control of agenda and minutes preparation, email dispatch and online publication wholly with its Member Services team.
The chosen software should automate existing processes, reduce duplication of administrative tasks and increase flexibility. The ideal solution would also provide a range of other e-governance tools such as outside body management, councillor biographies, an online record of Members' Interests and forward plans; and support access from mobile devices such as tablets and smartphones.
The software must integrate with existing and planned software used corporately by the LGA such as Microsoft SharePoint and CRM. Training and support for staff (including a support line) should be provided and we would welcome a commitment from providers to ensure that any product chosen is developed to keep pace with the evolving standards and requirements of the local government sector. Proposed solutions must have a tried, tested and verifiable track record.
Expressions of interest shall be made via email addressed email@example.com, which must be received by 2 pm on 19 February 2013.
The RFQ will be issued on 20 February 2013 for response by 18 March 2013.
The LGA is setting up a call-down framework for some of its externally commissioned research and analytical activity. The purpose of this exercise is to appoint relevant and qualified organisations to the framework so that, as and when research and analytical commissions are made, the LGA can call upon the best research expertise available to complete these.
