The Northern Lighthouse Board (NLB) Procurement Portal enables suppliers to view NLB contract announcements in real time. NLB uses BiP Solutions e-notice service Project for placing UK public notices and facilitates the publication of these notices immediately on this procurement portal. This gives suppliers instant access to the contract opportunities.
The UK Government recommends that authorities provide their purchasing and procurement information via a Buyer Profile and this facility has been incorporated in this procurement portal. The buyer profile provides information on purchase plans, contact details, future, current and past contracts. By publishing this information NLB offers suppliers the opportunity to identify future opportunities, respond to current opportunities and to view which suppliers have already been engaged along with the goods and/or services purchased.
