Can SMEs apply to become suppliers on an NHS SBS framework?
Small and medium enterprises, as with any other type of supplier, are able to express an interest in framework opportunities, downloading the procurement documents to assess the opportunity and to decide whether it may be suitable to bid for. During the procurement process suppliers will have an opportunity to submit questions electronically via the message centre in the EU-Supply UK to help clarify any queries. NHS SBS advertises tender opportunities (including those relating to frameworks) electronically on Contracts finder and in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU), which can be viewed on the Tenders Electronic Daily (TED) website.
The above links explain how and where to register to ensure opportunities are not missed.
