Become a Council Supplier
Welcome to Dublin City Council’s Procurement page. The City Council purchases a huge range of Supplies, Services and Works. This page contains general information on becoming a supplier to the City Council and provides links to documents and websites that you may find useful.
Dublin City Council does not operate an approved supplier list. The Council is bound by EU and national regulations and guidelines and must conduct business with suppliers in one of the following ways:
Quotations (where existing contract arrangements are not already in place): For Supplies and Services with values below €25,000 and for Works with values below €50,000, Dublin City Council will seek quotations.
- Supplies and Services - Where the value does not exceed €12,500 (excluding VAT), typically one quote is invited; where the value is over €12,500 (excluding VAT) but below €25,000 (excluding VAT), three quotations are sought.
- Works – Where the value does not exceed €50,000 (including VAT), five quotations are sought.
Tendering: Tendering opportunities are advertised on etenders and on OJEU/TED.
- Tenders for Supplies and Services with values between €25,000 - €207,000 (excluding VAT) and for Works contracts with values between €50,000 (including VAT) - €5,186,000 (excluding VAT) are advertised on www.etenders.gov.ie
- Tenders for Supplies and Services with values over €207,000 (excluding VAT) and for Works contracts with values over €5,186,000 (excluding VAT) are advertised on www.etenders.gov.ie and also in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU/TED)
It is very important that your company is registered as a Supplier on www.etenders.gov.ie and that you monitor the site to be aware of tendering opportunities with Dublin City Council and other public sector organisations. When you are registering as Supplier, please be sure to choose the correct CPV codes (Common Procurement Vocabulary) for your business area. You will then receive notification from etenders when tenders are published in your business area.
Non-contract Inventory Purchasing: Dublin City Council Stores use the E-Hub system to source all non-contract inventory purchases. E- Hub is an electronic request for quotations system (RFQ). The City Council’s Stores issue electronic RFQs via E-Hub to companies who are registered on the E-Hub system. The most economically advantageous quotation is accepted and a Purchase Order is issued electronically. Companies can register as bidders on E-Hub by contacting Dublin City Council’s Stores Management Unit ( firstname.lastname@example.org ).
