Qualifications Wales buys goods and services, including Subject Matter Expert 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. Please see our Procurement Policy.

To deliver efficiencies we are keen to collaborate on procurement activity with other public sector bodies. We use framework agreements let by Welsh Government National Procurement Service and the Crown Commercial Service along with any other suitable arrangements that are open to us


Sell2Wales is a Welsh Government website to enable Small & Medium Enterprises to work with the public sector. The Public Sector advertises up to £5 billion of notices annually making tenders accessible, and a growing number of organisations are using it. The site allows you to promote your company, contact registered public sector organisations and to keep up to date with procurement news in Wales.

Our Contract opportunities with a value of £25,000 and above are advertised on Sell2Wales, with the tender process managed either via this portal or 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.

Terms and conditions

Unless alternative terms have been agreed under a framework agreement or contract, Qualifications Wales Terms and Conditions of Contract for Purchase Orders apply to all purchases.
