Contracts and tendering

Current contract opportunities can be viewed on The Chest, a supplier portal developed for local authorities in the North West.

Current contract opportunities


Register as a supplier

Access to and participation in tendering and quotation exercises is free of charge for suppliers. Suppliers can register online to receive email updates on opportunities that match their capabilities.

The use of this portal will be the preferred method of sourcing goods, works and services for Lancaster City Council and you are therefore urged to register. Registration will allow suppliers to see contract opportunities and request participation or information from other authorities in the North West region.
