What is procurement?
Procurement can be defined as the process of purchasing goods and/or services from an external source or supplier, often through a tender or competitive bid process.
As a public sector body, Birmingham 2022 is not profit-making, however is bound by the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 (as amended), in addition to its own internal financial regulations. The principles of the Regulations centre around fairness, transparency and value for money.
Tenders are contract opportunities published for goods, services and other works. They give all types of businesses an equal and fair chance to competitively bid for opportunities.
