The Procurement, Commissioning and Contract Management (PCC) team strives to ensure it is open, fair and transparent in all its activity. For that reason, CITB does not have “approved” or “preferred” supplier lists.
CITB adopts a variety of sourcing approaches to meet our requirements. We always seek to ensure we deliver best value for money.
Most requirements over £10,000 are procured through our electronic tendering system BiP Solutions Ltd. Using this tendering portal provides a simple, secure and efficient method for managing the tender process and thus reducing the time and effort required for both the Procurement Team and suppliers.
The PCC Team are always keen to work with new suppliers. If you are interested in:
- receiving information on current CITB requirements:
- responding to CITB tenders:
CITB will trade under its own terms and conditions. However, if we are procuring under a government framework, we will contract under the terms and conditions for that framework.
CITB is a Non-Departmental Public Body and its engagement with suppliers is governed by Public Contracts Regulations 2015 and relevant EU legislation.
You can always contact us directly and we will be happy to help.
Reminder: IR35 requirement for all submissions
Before completing any relevant tender documentation please complete the online IR 35 checker. This will enable CITB to ascertain our obligations under the new IR35 regulations. Once completed, please forward CITB the results alongside your tender documents.
Further information can be found on the IR35 guidance page.
