  • General Workwear

Depending on procurement needs, some workwear and PPE supply tenders may extend to the provision of additional materials, including uniforms, tools and accessories. 

Buyers may also seek to establish agreements for providers to deliver stock to identified distribution centres, or alternatively for direct delivery to customers.

Who Commissions Tenders For Workwear & PPE Supplies?

Services are regularly outsourced by both private and public sector organisations.  Some commissions will be made by a Central Purchasing Body, with the resulting framework accessed by a number of different bodies, such as local Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) and other emergency services, NHS Trusts, registered charities and educational institutions.

In terms of typical procurement models, multi-provision tenders will usually look to award multiple framework contracts to a designated number of providers, with the different deliverables split into individual lots.  Other commissions will look to establish a single supplier.

What is Normally Involved in a Workwear & PPE Tender?

Tender submissions and requirements will vary across workwear and PPE tenders, although there are some common question sets we see crop up.  These include:

The evaluation of quality criteria may be based on a combination of quality and price, i.e. the Most Economically Advantageous Tender (MEAT), or it could just be down to quality alone.  In each scenario it is important to remember that quality is consistently the most important factor, and the more points a bidder picks up on quality, the more flexible they can be in respect of pricing.

Certain products supplied under the banner of workwear and PPE and their producers will be required to comply with set industry standards, such as the British Standards produced by the BIS Group, CE Marking, and individual commissioners may also require providers to demonstrate the security of their management systems, asking them to evidence compliance with ISO standards.  For more information on common accreditations and certifications click here.
