Procurement – tendering, RFQ and requisition tools

There are several tools and systems that the council uses when interacting with suppliers. Due North and the Supply Tower Hamlets portal are ones where tenders and requests for quotation (RFQ) respectively are issued and where supplier details are stored.

Suppliers who are successful in tenders or in requests for quotation will be set up on the council's e-invoicing system. once set up, suppliers will be able to view purchase orders, provide electronic catalogues, receive e-orders and send e-invoices.

For current tender opportunities, please visit the Proactis/London Tenders Portal.

E-Tendering and sourcing

LBTH currently uses the Proactis London Tenders Portal for procurement exercises over £100,000. To be able to participate in tender opportunities a supplier will have to self- register using the link below, provide basic information regarding their organisation and then proceed on to the advertised opportunity. Visit the Proactis/London Tenders Portal for more information.

Supply Tower Hamlets – LBTH’s RFQ and supplier portal

The RFQ tool enables council officers to seek quotations for supplies, services and works below £100,000. This is the councils preferred route for low value procurement. All new supplier set up are required to be registered on this portal. In addition, suppliers will need to register on the site to access RFQs issued to them, where they are able to update their organisational details 24x7 and where they will need to complete LBTH’s compliance questionnaire should they be successful in an RFQ.
