We aim to provide prospective companies across all tiers with visibility of both Tideway and its supply chain's requirements and opportunities.

Opportunities will fall into two categories: direct with Tideway and indirect with the Tier 1 contractors and associated supply chain.

We have now directly procured and are managing a relatively small number of Tier 1 contractors. Tier 1 contractors in turn will be buying a wide variety of goods, services and works from a large number of smaller suppliers and contractors.

More information on the procurement opportunities and key contact information for our Main Works Tier 1 contractors are available here: Works Opportunities

Direct opportunities

The Thames Tideway Tunnel is subject to the Utilities Contracts Regulations. Direct opportunities valued above the EU thresholds will be advertised through the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU).

You will be able to find all Thames Tideway Tunnel OJEU Contract Notices on the Tenders Electronic Daily (TED) website and each notice will provide details of the particular opportunity and, for interested organisations, instructions on how to respond.

Our smaller direct contracts (below EU thresholds), where appropriate, will be advertised on CompeteFor.

Indirect opportunities

For opportunities with our Tier 1 contractors (and potentially sub-tier's within), you may wish to contact them directly and they will individually advise you on how to work with them on the Thames Tideway Tunnel. (Note: contact details can be found within the Works Opportunity download).

We will require Tier 1 contractors to advertise all appropriate opportunities on CompeteFor. Once you have registered your business and published a CompeteFor business profile, you will automatically receive email alerts for appropriate tender opportunities.
