How to respond to a tender

Step 1 - Registering for eSourcing tool

Our procurements are conducted using our eSourcing tool. You will need to be registered on our eSourcing tool to participate in any of our tender opportunities. To register you will need to provide information including:

  • The full legal name of your organisation
  • Your DUNS number (a unique nine-digit number provided to organisations free of charge by Dun & Bradstreet)
  • Profile information describing your organisation and the size of your business

Please refer to our Supplier Guidance for eSourcing Registration pack for more help with registration. 


Step 2 - Responding through the eSourcing tool

Read our guidance document for help responding to a tender via the eSourcing tool.

You may also find our 'how to' guides helpful. These short step by step guides have been developed to help you carry out specific administrative and tender related tasks in the eSourcing tool. 

Further details about responding to specific tender opportunities can be found by clicking on the link to the procurement you are interested in from our procurement pipeline.

Please note:

If you wish to respond to a non-Crown Commercial Service tender opportunity on Contracts Finder or TED please follow the advice provided in the OJEU contract notice as the process may vary.
