Engagement event taking place for suppliers in South & East Lincolnshire

Public Sector Partnership Services Limited (PSPS) have organised a supplier engagement event to engage with local suppliers and businesses, provide details around Public Sector Procurement, and advise on how to sell to the Councils.

The event is taking place on 17 April 2024 at the following locations:

  • East Lindsey District Council, The Hub, Mareham Road, Horncastle, LN9 6PH
  • South Holland District Council, Council Offices, Priory Road, Spalding, PE11 2XE
  • Boston Borough Council, Municipal Buildings, West Street, Boston, PE21 8QR

There will be an added option to attend supplier premises within the District should suppliers find this more useful.

The aim of the event is to listen to provide useful advice and guidance on how to sell to the Councils, listen to the concerns suppliers may have around the process of Public Sector procurement, understand areas of concern or misunderstanding that may be putting suppliers off bidding for works or services within the Council, and to showcase that the procurement team are approachable and willing to support.

During the event, suppliers can expect support in registering onto the e-Tendering Portal, support in where to look for Public Sector contracts, a detailed explanation on the tender process, and answers to any queries they may have. 

Providing various services including Procurement & Contracts for South & East Lincolnshire Councils Partnership, PSPS play an important role in the work that goes on across the East Lindsey, South Holland and Boston Borough areas.

In a joint statement, Councillor Sandeep Ghosh Portfolio Holder for Finance at Boston Borough Council, Councillor Richard Fry Portfolio Holder for Finance at East Lindsey District Council and Councillor Paul Redgate Portfolio Holder for Finance, Commercialisation, UKSPF and Levelling Up at South Holland District Council, said: "We are very pleased that this event is taking place in an all important effort to engage with local suppliers and listen to any concerns or queries they may have around the procurement or tendering process.

"Ensuring that our local suppliers understand our processes thoroughly is key in building helpful and constructive partnerships, so we really encourage any applicable person to book a session with our friendly procurement team who will do everything they can to inform and clear up concerns or misunderstandings."
