Once a contract has been awarded, the supplier must ensure that quality and performance stated in the tender documents are maintained (or improved) throughout the contract period.
The Council monitors contract progress and the standard of services or works provided to ensure contract requirements are met. For works contracts this involves regular communication with a designated Project Manager and submission of activity records. For service contracts a named officer is designated to monitor the performance of the service provider.
Documentation to support suppliers in tendering. The Council spends approximately £15 million on goods, works and services annually.
Contracts and opportunities
We are now publishing our contracts and tender opportunities on the new
Supplying the South West portal web portal, alongside a growing number of other councils in the South West.
This regional portal gives you a one-stop shop window on contract opportunities from a growing number of councils in the South West. Even without registering, you can use the portal to look for information about existing contracts and new opportunities.
If you register as a supplier then you can opt to receive email notification of any tender opportunities that would be of interest to you. You can specify which councils and what contract types are of interest. As a registered supplier you will also be able to register your interest in any advertised opportunity and request the tender documents to be sent to you. The service is completely free of charge.
Sedgemoor has already started putting opportunities on the portal and will be doing so increasingly in the coming months.
The portal also now serves as Sedgemoor's published contracts register.
