Genesis procurement opportunities

Under European legislation, public sector organisations must advertise tendering opportunities for certain high value contracts in OJEU (Official Journal of the European Union).

Genesis Housing Association uses a web-based Electronic Tendering (e-Tendering) System for all procurements above £50,000 for Goods and Services and £150,000 for Works – these opportunities are published via the EU Supply e-procurement portal.

Genesis uses the EU Supply Procurement Portal to conduct tenders for goods, services and works contracts. A range of public authorities utilise this tool and further information can be gained from the portal.

Through the EU Supply Procurement portal suppliers can easily:

  • Search for Genesis opportunities
  • Register to 'express an interest' in order to view documents relating to opportunities and participate in tendering activities
  • Communicate throughout the tendering process.

If you are interested in supplying goods and services to Genesis, you can register your company as a supplier online.
