Contracts and tenders

Procurement is the process of acquiring goods, works and services from third parties. This is normally undertaken by obtaining quotations or for larger contracts over £25,000 through a formal tender process.

Our procurement strategy (pdf, 473kb) sets out when and how we procure from third parties, while the Contracts Register provides a list of existing contracts.

Suppliers who wish to tender for contracts will find details of existing opportunities on Derbyshire Force, together with the Government’s Contracts Finder website.

Anyone interested in finding out any further information, including how to tender and to enquire about potential opportunities available etc. should contact us by email at
