We buy goods, works, and services from a wide range of providers. We award contracts to organisations that can meet our requirements and standards. Contracts can range from small, one-off purchases up to multi-million pound contracts lasting several years.

Guidance on bidding for Council contracts

Our Doing Business With Us (Word) provides guidance on doing business with the London Borough of Waltham Forest and the London Borough of Redbridge.

These guidance notes:

  • explain to businesses including suppliers of goods, works, or services how the council procures what it needs
  • allow businesses to get greater access to sell their goods, works, and services
  • encourage businesses to compete for our contracts

Please note that we are unable to respond to marketing correspondence or unsolicited sales
