New business opportunity opens

NEW business opportunities could be opened up in Northumberland in a supplier awareness event.

Northumberland County Council has organised the event for local businesses to learn more about how they can become suppliers to the local authority and others in the region by registering on the North East Procurement Organisation’s ProContract e-sourcing system.

They can also find out about the council’s quick quotation system for supplies under £50,000, in which four relevant businesses on the database are randomly selected for a quotation.

The event takes place at County Hall on Tuesday, from 9.15am to noon, and 1pm to 4pm.

Anyone unable to attend can register their business at
