As a public sector organisation, Merseytravel spends approximately £160million per annum on a diverse range of supplies, services and works - all aimed at facilitating and improving transport across the Merseyside region. In line with best practice, Merseytravel looks to advertise all tender opportunities through an online e-portal linked to a large number of other public sector organisations in the North West of England.
'The Chest' allows suppliers to register free of charge and receive automated emails whenever a new opportunity is published. It brings a range of benefits for both suppliers and buying organisations, as well as providing a very detailed support service to suppliers in managing the online procurement process. A link to this site and all current advertised opportunities is provided below.
Merseytravel would also like to adopt an open and transparent process associated with the goods and services that we purchase. With this in mind, and in line with national government guidance, Merseytravel also publishes all expenditure that we incur over £500. This information is published each month and details the payment made, to which supplier, the date of the transaction and the relevant payment reason. The expenditure link below will take you to this relevant data for all periods since April 2011.
