Under regulations set by the Cabinet Office, as a buying organisation, you are required to advertise your contract opportunities openly to suppliers in the industry.
We fully acknowledge this requirement with a solution that enables you to advertise your opportunities to contractors, consultants and suppliers with complete openness and transparency – whilst saving time and cost in the process for your organisation.
Constructionline will assist you with the following methods of advertisement:
Constructionline will assist you in the advertisement of your OJEU and sub-OJEU contracts on regional and national procurement portals to advertise your contract opportunities openly to the construction industry.
By referencing Constructionline as an exemption for suppliers at Stage One of the assessment process when you advertise on regional and national portals, you’ll save a large amount of time and money when assessing responses from Constructionline registered suppliers, who will already have undergone our PAS 91 aligned assessment process to achieve membership. So you can rest assured, safe in the knowledge that they have already met the required standards to work with you.
Regional advertising portals are used for project works that are within a particular location/region. National portals hold advertisements for large national projects.
Examples of Regional/national advertising portals:
As a registered buyer, you have access to Constructionline’s Opportunities Notice Board (ONB) – our free tool where you can advertise your work leads, supply chain opportunities, framework adverts and other notices exclusively to our registered suppliers.
When you post a contract on our Opportunities Notice Board, you’ll ensure that all expressions of interest you receive will be made only by suppliers relevant to your project. Using the functionality, you can set criteria which the supplier is required to meet before they can express an interest for your works, for example:
And of course, because all expressions of interest will be made from registered Constructionline suppliers, you can be confident that each supplier has met the required standards to work with you.
To help you generate expressions of interest, our marketing team will send out a targeted email communication, on your behalf, to our supplier members that meet your criteria.
