Contract opportunities

Our Procurement team is part of LGSS, a shared services venture set up by founding partners; Cambridgeshire County Council and Northamptonshire County Council to deliver a wide range of professional and transactional services to local authorities and other public sector organisations. Milton Keynes Council joined as a third partner in April 2016.

Contracts Finder

We deliver a wide range of professional and transactional services to local authorities and other public sector organisations.

All contract opportunities are advertised on Contracts Finder, a central advertising portal for contract opportunities in the UK.

Suppliers can register on the portal and save their searches in order to receive email alerts for categories or areas they may be interested in.

The Procurement team actively uses eProcurement tools. As well as offering small reductions to EU tender timescales, such tools can also reduce administrative tasks and offer greater transparency and audit to the process.


To view and tender for contract opportunities advertised by Northamptonshire County Council, potential providers can visit the LGSS Procurement Portal.

You will need to register on this portal in order to view those opportunities. When searching for contract opportunities, please use the 'Find opportunities' tab, filtering by 'LGSS' as the portal.

Supplier user guides written by ProContract on how to use the portal can be found once logged in to your account by accessing the 'Help' function.

We have also written our own guide on using the portal which can be found below:

If you have any queries about the LGSS Procurement Portal please contact
