How To Tender

The University of Derby are members of the North Eastern Universities Purchasing Consortium(NEUPC). The NEUPC provides us with access to a suite of Contracts competitively tendered under the EU public procurement regulations. Upcoming agreements are advertised in the OJEU. There is a dedicated supplier section on their website which provides details on how to register, receive alerts to opportunities and for general enquiries.

Opportunities will be published in OJEU and Contracts Finder.
