Find out more about this opportunity below.


Infrastructure Contracts

Council tender opportunities within the city include road surfacing, painting, lighting, temporary traffic management, landscaping, installation of playgrounds and heritage restoration. These contracts form part of a wider local authority procurement framework in partnership with North Lanarkshire and Renfrewshire councils.

Glasgow City council is looking to work with at least five companies to cover all elements of the construction, repair and maintenance requirements.

The appointment of new suppliers will happen in May next year, with contracts running for three years.


Opportunities for SME businesses

Councillor Susan Aitken, Leader of Glasgow City Council, believes that the new investment will benefit local micro businesses and SMEs:

“These major contracts will bring jobs and opportunities for local people and organisations to work on projects that improve Glasgow’s economy in the short and long term…I would invite all those interested in bidding for these contracts to visit the procurement website.”
