Procurement activity

To ensure that our procurement activity is open and transparent we are publishing a series of datasets.

These datasets will include information on every Invitation to Tender (ITT) for contracts to provide goods and/or services with a value that exceeds £5,000, and the procurement forward plan which details upcoming contracts over £50,000 in value.

Invitations to tender (ITT)


The ITT dataset will be produced quarterly, but we aim to provide real time data in the future.  This information will currently be made available by the end of the first month of each quarter:

  • April to June
  • July to September
  • October to December
  • January to March

The procurement forward plan will be produced six-monthly and will be made available by the end of the October and April of each year:

  • April to September
  • October to March
