Guidance for suppliers:
Tenders are advertised via the OJEU, on In-Tend:
Cardiff University uses In-Tend for the submission of the majority of tenders. This is an electronic tender system which allows suppliers to download tender documentation and submit tenders electronically. It also allows queries to be dealt with efficiently with an audit trail. We encourage suppliers to register on the system. You will need to be registered if you wish to download a tender that has been advertised as being on the system. Follow the link above to access our guide to registering.
