In-Tend  - Supplier Portal

All major contracting opportunities (contracts valued over the current EU threshold excluding VAT) are formally published on Find a Tender www.gov.uk/find-tender

Lower value requirements (from £25,000 to EU threshold including VAT) are typically advertised on the Government's Contracts Finder website www.gov.uk/contracts-finder

The University chooses its suppliers through competitive tendering when it needs to fulfil a requirement for goods, services or works (or quotations at lower values).

The University of Worcester utilises the In-Tend portal to run tender exercises. If you are interested in working with the University of Worcester you can access In-Tend through the following link:
