Procurement tender opportunities and guidance
CSW-Jets - Tendering Portal
Since February 2010, Local Authorities across Warwickshire have been working together as a shared procurement service with a shared procurement strategy and savings plan. CSW-JETS enables us to advertise our opportunities across all authorities through the same system. This means that there is a single point of contact for procurement in the sub region so you only have to register once to receive notifications for all authorities.
