Open procurement in the 21st century

As a council we're required to ensure best value from the public money we spend. 

That means spending no more than we have to, and making sure we buy only the right goods and services for the job.

We often need small items of work done, or to buy small numbers of goods that we don't have a regular supplier framework for.

Those sorts of jobs will be advertised on this page, and we'll publish updates on our Twitter feed when new requests for quotes are published.

Each time we put an item on this page, we'll tell you the specifications of the job or item required. All we need from you is: 

  • a quote for the work / item required
  • evidence that you are a recognized trader
  • Evidence that you have the right to work / trade in the UK or EU
  • if undertaking work evidence that you have the appropriate insurance.

Each job when published will have a closing date. We'll do our best in each case to provide feedback as to why an individual contractor was selected for the work.

Telephone system - 31 July 2017Berwick Town Council requires quotes for the provision of a new phone system.

We currently have a three handset VOIP system operating via a BT broadband connection. This isn't reliable enough for our purposes, so we're seeking alternative solutions that deliver reliability. We don't have an in-house IT team so require a resilient solution that doesn't require large amounts of in house technical support.

We need at least four handsets, and at least three lines; voicemail would be required as well. Please send quotes / estimates or any questions you have to

We don't guarantee to accept any quote, even if it is the cheapest; we will be balancing price with aftersales support and reliability. We are looking to make a purchasing decision in early September.

if you have any questions please contacts us via
