Opportunities for construction and building services in North Tyneside

North Tyneside Council will soon be launching a major procurement activity, with contracts to be available for suppliers of all sizes.

Ahead of this, North Tyneside Council would like to invite sub-contractors and suppliers to come and hear how you could become part of the housing, repairs and maintenance supply chain.

The events will focus on sharing information regarding the process for submitting tenders and other relevant opportunities.

Contracts will range in value, so there will be sessions aimed at those who are self-employed, sole traders and local businesses, as well as other sessions for larger, national businesses.

Sessions will include representatives from the North East Purchasing Organisation (NEPO) and North Tyneside Council.

The sessions will all be held at The Parks Sports Centre, North Shields, on the following dates:

For sub-contractors:

  • Tuesday 24 July (aimed at smaller, local businesses), 8am-9am or 5.30pm-6.30pm
  • Wednesday 25 July (aimed at larger, national businesses), 8am-9am or 5.30pm-6.30pm

For suppliers:

  • Tuesday 24 July, (aimed at smaller, local businesses), 9.30am-10.30am or 4pm-5pm
  • • Wednesday 25 July (aimed at larger, national businesses), 9.30am-10.30am or 4pm-5pm
