NHS North East Essex CCG is responsible for shaping and designing the healthcare services that local people need, then selecting the best organisations to run them. The process of specifying a service and identifying the appropriate organisation or organisations to deliver the service is called Procurement.

The CCG follows strict processes in order to obtain best value for money whilst ensuring transparency fairness, equal opportunity and proportionality.

On this page, you can find out more about the processes we will follow in procuring services.

Procurement opportunities will be nationally advertised in Contracts Finder as well as, where relevant, in TED  (Tenders Electronic Daily) which is the official commercial supplement to the journal of the European Union.




Contracts Finder and TED  (Tenders Electronic Daily) advertise national and international tenders but for your convenience, the CCG also has its own Bravo Solutions e-procurement system which will show all opportunities openly advertised by the CCG.

Organisations wishing to express an interest in any current procurement opportunities must register to use the portal. Following registration, you will then be provided with login details allowing you to:

  • Confirm your expression of interest
  • Respond to pre-qualification requests for information and, if short- listed, receive invitations to tender
  • Download tender documentation
  • Submit responses electronically.

This e-tendering service and e-tendering helpdesk are provided free of charge to organisations. If you have any problems, contact the portal's technical support on or 0800 368 4850
