Welcome

Welcome (Edit Profile)

The following information has been put together for our suppliers. We hope you find the information useful but if you have any questions or require further assistance, please get in touch with our team.

Manufacturer Terms

On behalf of our members, we have negotiated preferential discounts with most leading motor manufacturers in the United Kingdom, for use against vehicle procurements conducted under our Framework Agreements. This section of the website is primarily designed to serve leasing providers with a repository of all current live TPPL manufacturer discount terms, available for download.

Marketing opportunities

We see extensive PR opportunities generated through the procurement of products or services by our public sector members through our Frameworks Agreements.  As a leading framework provider, our marketing team is in a strong position to collaborate with our appointed suppliers to promote transactions and in turn reciprocally extend the reach of our audiences.

Upcoming Tenders

Our Framework Agreements typically have a 4 year lifecycle from contract award and suppliers cannot apply to participate after the initial contract award has been published. The next opportunity to participate is upon renewal of the contract which takes place shortly before expiry of the preceding contract. This section provides you with information of our new procurement solutions and upcoming Framework renewals. When a Framework tender is published we will include a link to the electronic portal it is being tendered using.

Useful links and resources

We understand public procurement processes can be complicated, and sometimes confusing for suppliers. In this section we detail a variety of useful resources and internet links, all relevant to public procurement portals used by the wider public sector in the United Kingdom. We have also included links to government legislation regarding public procurement, should suppliers need to refer to the official regulations to help you gain a better understanding.

Do you need support with your next tender or procurement strategy?

To find out more about the consultancy services we offer and how your organisation can benefit from working with us, please get in touch with our team.
