Please note that we do not keep approved lists of suppliers. We ensure that requirements are competitively advertised, tendered and awarded following a fair, objective and impartial procedure.

We do not charge for our Tender Documentation. This is freely available to all interested parties from this portal. 

Suppliers and those organisations looking to bid for public sector contracts should be aware that if they are awarded a new government contract, the resulting contract between the supplier and NLB may be published. In some circumstances, limited redactions will be made to some contracts before they are published to comply with existing law and for the protection of national security.

NLB has a zero-tolerance to bribery and corruption. Our policy extends to all NLB’s business dealings and transactions and these both have a wide interpretation across all functions. A copy of our Anti-Bribery Policy can be found on our website.
