The council maintains a small number of approved lists where low value transactions of a similar type regularly occur, but where they need to be priced individually. These lists may also be known as ‘preferred supplier lists’, ‘standing lists’ or ‘select lists’. They are being phased out in favour of framework agreements.
The majority of the council's business opportunities (including frameworks) are advertised on the YORtender secure website.
The council also places Prior Indicative Notices (PINs) in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) setting out proposed procurement requirements for each type of goods and/or services above a threshold of £164,176 and for works above a threshold of £4,104,394.
