£180M of work up for grabs at NI Water
NI Water has about £180M to spend on goods, services and construction over the next 12 months. The company is holding a Supplier Day on March 26, saying there are "tremendous opportunities" available for new and existing companies across a diverse range of sectors to tender for large and small contract requirements within NI Water.
Ronan Larkin, director of Finance and Regulation at NI Water: said: “In the 2013/14 financial year alone, NI Water spent £200M with suppliers and contractors. Many of these contracts have benefited local firms, in many sectors including the construction sector, thereby supporting our local economy at this time. An example of this is one local company, JBS Group, who have recently been awarded a tender to supply NI Water with corporate work wear.
“However, I am aware that the procurement system can appear to be complex for companies seeking to tender for opportunities available. Therefore, we are inviting businesses to attend a Supplier Day to give suppliers an opportunity to meet the NI Water procurement teams. Our Procurement Team will be on hand to cover the range of goods and services required by NI Water and will answer any questions potential suppliers may have."
Larkin said InterTradeIreland will also be on hand to provide advice, particularly in the area of consortium bid opportunities.
The Supplier Day is being held at the NI Water Training Centre in Antrim. Companies wanting to attend can pre-book by completing the registration form available at www.niwater.com.
