In a great opportunity for Newry businesses, NI Water has launched a summary of its goods, services and construction contracts, with an estimated value of approximately £198 million, required by the company over the next 12 months. niwater17This is an exciting opportunity for new and existing companies across a diverse range of sectors, including the SME sector, to come on board and work with NI Water. As one of Northern Ireland’s largest companies, there are fantastic opportunities available to tender for large and small contract requirements within NI Water. Supply options for almost every kind of material are on the table, from soap in our employee bathrooms to major engineering services. Ronan Larkin, NI Water’s Director of Finance and Regulation explained, “In the 2015/16 financial year alone, NI Water awarded contracts to the value of £224 million to suppliers and contractors. “Many of these contracts have benefited local firms in many sectors, not least the construction and engineering sector, thereby continuing to support our local economy at this time. “As an example of our commitment to assisting the Northern Ireland economy, NI Water recently placed an order with Dungannon based company Donnelly Group Ltd to supply 41 of NI Water’s corporate vehicles.

September 2016“NI Water is delighted to have this arrangement in place with a prominent local company to ensure the servicing and supply of our distinctive vehicle fleet, and we are equally pleased to support the local economy in this way. “However, I am aware that the procurement system can appear to be complex for many companies seeking to tender for opportunities available,” he continued. “Therefore, we are inviting businesses to attend our ‘Supplier Day’ event in October to give suppliers an opportunity to meet the NI Water procurement teams. Our Procurement Team will be on hand to cover the range of goods, services and construction opportunities required by NI Water and will answer any questions potential suppliers may have.” “Joining us again this year is InterTradeIreland who will be on hand to provide advice, particularly in the area of consortium bid opportunities. The ‘Supplier Day’ is on Thursday 27th October 2016. The event, which is being held at the NI Water Training Centre in Antrim, is designed for all current and potential suppliers to learn more about NI Water’s procurement process, our requirements over the next 12 months and how to respond to tenders. Those interested in booking a 20 minute meeting slot with a procurement officer are required to pre-book by completing the registration form available on their website and emailing it to sourcing@niwater.com Places are limited and will be allocated on a strictly first come, first served basis.
