Does the council have approved lists?

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.
