Qualifications Wales is a procurer of goods and services within Wales. Suppliers are vital partners in helping us to deliver our Principal Aims.
Procurement in Qualifications Wales
We conduct our procurement activity in compliance with EU Public Procurement Directives, the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 and the Concession Contract Regulations 2016.
The principles by which we carry out procurement are laid out in our Procurement Policy.
Contract opportunities with a value of £25,000 and above are advertised on Sell2Wales, with the tender process managed via etenderwales. Registration on both these sites is free to potential suppliers.
A minimum of three quotations will be sought for contracts with a value between £5,000 and £24,999 excluding VAT.
Qualifications Wales is keen to collaborate on procurement activity with other public sector bodies to deliver efficiencies. We use framework agreements let by the Welsh Government National Procurement Service and the Crown Commercial Service along with any other suitable arrangements that are open to Qualifications Wales to use.
Sell2Wales is an initiative from the Welsh Government helping SMEs to work successfully with the public sector. Sell2Wales advertises up to £5 billion of notices annually and has a growing number of public sector bodies advertising through it, to make tenders more accessible. The site allows you to promote your company, contact registered public sector organisations and to keep up to date with procurement news in Wales.

Qualifications Wales Terms and Conditions of Contract for Purchase Orders apply to all purchase orders issued to suppliers unless alternative terms have been agreed under a framework agreement or contract.
