Tendering for council work

Hillingdon Council spends millions of pounds on procurement each year, providing companies of all sizes with a wide range of commercial opportunities.

Lack of information about opportunities and a lack of understanding of the council's contracting procedures may well be stopping companies such as yours from applying for council contracts.

This following information aims to help all potential contractors, consultants and suppliers to tender for contracts with Hillingdon Council.

There is, of course, a great deal of competition for Hillingdon Council contracts and this guide cannot assure individual companies of success. However, it should provide sufficient information to allow you to tender for council work.

Hillingdon Council does not operate an approved supplier list. All contracts over £5,000 can be viewed on the capitalEsourcing portal.


As part of the Hillingdon Council's continued commitment to helping the environment, our tenders are carried out electronically via capitalEsourcing. Registering is quick and simple and we would highly recommend that companies register.

This is an online tendering system that provides a central source of information for all of the council's tenders.

It enables companies to register their details (free of charge) under the categories of work they provide, and receive email updates whenever a tender is published in those categories. Companies will then be able to express their interest in a tender, download the tender documents and respond electronically.

Other local authorities in London also issue tenders using this portal so if there are no suitable tenders with us you may find a relevant tender with them.

Advertising of tenders

The majority of the council's tenders are advertised through various formats. These range from Hillingdon Council's website, local press such as the Uxbridge Leader and the Uxbridge Gazette to national press such as the Guardian. Tenders are also advertised in various trade journals that are relevant to the tender. In Local Government, all contracts that are advertised over £25,000 appear on the Contracts Finder.
