Current opportunities (eProcurement)

Quotes and tenders

eProcurement is a way of doing business with the council electronically. We buy goods, services and works from a wide range of suppliers and service providers. Contracts are awarded to organisations that can meet our standards and offer best value for money. Contracts can range from small, one-off purchases up to multi-million pound service contracts lasting several years.

Three year procurement pipeline

To ensure better visibility and access to tendering opportunities for small and medium sized local businesses, the procurement pipeline contains details of contracts expected to be re-procured and new procurement projects that are expected to be undertaken by Ealing Council with a value greater than £75,000. 

Please be aware that there is no guarantee that any published pipeline project will lead to a tender publication as we may opt to make use of a compliant framework agreement, exercise an extension option in the contract or decide not to proceed with the procurement altogether.

This information reflects our anticipated procurement pipeline for the next three financial years and is subject to change. If you have a query regarding any of the projects listed in this document, please contact

When a contract is due for renewal an advertisement is placed on one of the three online portals:

Contracts finder

This is an online service specifically designed for small medium enterprises (SME). Contracts Finder is used by officers across the council for any contracts which are advertised. 
Suppliers who are interested in providing a range of goods, services and works are encouraged to register their details on the system so they can capture any existing procurement opportunities.

Ealing Tender Management Portal

The benefits to suppliers are:

  • Suppliers' details are stored in the portal which means that they do not have to fill out all sections of their submissions for each project they bid for.  This should encourage greater numbers of suppliers to bid, including more local small medium enterprises (SME). 
  • The portal provides a single point of access to what Ealing is purchasing, making it much easier to find and bid for opportunities.
  • Enables improved communications without the use of paper with reminders and notifications of key milestone sent to the supplier throughout.

Contract award notices will also be placed on these systems once a procurement had been completed.

Online help and guidance is available on how to use the systems within each portal.
