We’re always looking to work with organisations that want to offer their services and products. We’re also committed to incorporating sustainable procedures into our thinking and actions by purchasing sustainable products and services.

Our procurement team is in charge of many high-value procurements, including those with more specialised requirements and those that exceed WTO Agreement on Government Procurement (GPA) thresholds.

Goods and services over £10,000

Our procurement team and/or the Crown Commercial Service will handle requests for goods and/or services worth more than £10,000 (inclusive of VAT).

The Crown Commercial Service will often manage procurements for common goods and services, such as ICT, consultancy, office solutions and communications, on behalf of CCW.

Information on the frameworks it operates or how to become a supplier are located on the Crown Commercial Service website.

Where the use of existing frameworks does not meet departmental needs, opportunities are advertised on the Contracts Finder website.

Goods and services under £10,000

Individual departments are in charge of awarding contracts for up to £10,000 (inclusive of VAT). They must receive enough quotes to be able to identify the most suitable supplier, offering the best value for money and the highest quality of goods or services.

Procurement opportunities valued at £10,000 (inclusive of VAT) or more are advertised on the Contracts Finder website where the use of existing frameworks does not meet departmental needs.

Our contracts are also advertised in the Find a Tender (FTS), the UK e-notification service where notices for new procurements are required to be published in line with our obligation under the Public Contract Regulations 2015 and other relevant regulations.

Spend controls

The Cabinet Office operates spending controls that help government departments reduce wasteful expenditure.

Supporting small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs)

We recognise the important role of SMEs in delivering economic growth and prosperity in the UK and we encourage SMEs to bid for opportunities to work with us.

The Cabinet Office has published details of government measures to promote SME procurement and spend on direct and indirect SMEs.


We are committed to maintaining the highest levels of probity in all of our financial activities, including the conduct of Procurement.

If you have, any concerns regarding the conduct of CCW employees engaged in the procurement process they should notify Simon Millward, Executive Head of Business Services, at [email protected], CCW, 23 Stephenson Street, Birmingham, B2 4BH.
