Calling tradespeople & suppliers!

Published on Wednesday, 16th October 2019

Want to find out how to become a council supplier or have ideas on how to improve the council tender process? Come to our event in November to give us your ideas and find out more.

NBBC is looking at ways to make its procurement process easier for new suppliers and small to medium enterprises (SME’s). We have some ideas on this but would really like to hear your views.

Maybe you have been through the council’s tendering process before and have ideas of how it could be improved? Maybe you are a SME or sole trader who would like to know how to tender for Council services?

We have two events taking place at Bedworth Civic Hall, the first on November 5th for our existing suppliers and a second event on November 6th for potential suppliers. There will be two sessions on each day, the morning session will run from 9.30am until 12pm and the afternoon session will run from 1.30pm until 4pm, sessions include networking and refreshments.

Although we look to invite tenders for our full range of services, we are specifically looking to tender in the following areas in 2020: construction & internal/external building repair works, pest control, window cleaning, architect services, infrastructure maintenance, supply & installation of street nameplates, fleet vehicle tyre supply.

If you are considering becoming a supplier for the council we would love for you to come along and find out about how you can do this, and hopefully contribute to discussions on how we can streamline our tender application in the process.

We would love to hear from you so please book onto the event via

Cllr Julie Jackson, Leader of Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council said:

“This is a great event for anyone wishing to tender for the council, we are always looking at ways to attract new businesses and are hoping that these events can help us to do this more efficiently.

“By listening to those businesses who have already been through the council’s tender process we can learn how to improve our systems and make the whole process simpler for everyone.

“I am extremely proud of the Council’s ongoing commitment in supporting small businesses, we have won several FSB (Federation of Small Businesses) awards for our ‘Think Local First’ campaign which shows our commitment in this area, and events like these provide even more opportunities for SME’s to benefit from Nuneaton & Bedworth Borough Council’s ‘small business friendly’ approach.”
