Croydon Council uses the London Tenders Portal (LTP) to tender for its contracts. All current and potential suppliers interested in doing business with Croydon Council are encouraged to take time to register for this service as this alerts the Council of the organisation’s interest in hearing about the upcoming business opportunities. Suppliers can register here and the supplier guide to help suppliers use the portal can be found here.
Tender opportunities are also promoted via Value Croydon - Croydon Tenders, though some opportunities are tendered on LTP through call-offs from existing frameworks, and those might not be visible on Value Croydon. For small value opportunities (under £25k) the Council is also beginning to use LTP, so local supplier are highly encouraged to sign up.
The introduction to how to do business with the Council can be found here.

Constructionline - the Council uses the government-sponsored Constructionline, the UK’s largest register of local and national pre-qualified construction and construction-related services as the source for selecting contractors and consultants to tender for certain construction projects. Suppliers will also need to be registered on a local authorities-run health and safety database known as CHAS (Contractors Health And Safety Scheme).
