Opportunities for industry to deliver part of the European Spallation Source Active Cells Facility

UKAEA implement procurement best practice by focusing on achieving value for money, transparency and seek to treat all contractors fairly and equitably.

For upcoming opportunities UKAEA may advertise through the Cabinet Office Contracts Finder. Contracts Finder is a one-stop-shop for suppliers to identify contract opportunities. For opportunities above EU Procurement thresholds, we also advertise in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU).

Expressions of interest, requests to participate or enquiries, where applicable, should be submitted directly to the named Procurement representative as outlined in the advertisement.

Pre-qualification questionnaires are not generally used for sub OJEU opportunities, PQQ’s in relation to OJEU opportunities will be clearly stated within the advertisements and will require submission of information about competencies, qualifications, organisation and relevant experience for the particular project advertised.

For any enquiries please contact a member of the ESS procurement team
