Welcome to the ‘Bluelight’ Emergency Services eTendering Site
The Bluelight eTendering site was initially launched in November 2004, to give suppliers easier access to tenders and quotations published by the Police and Fire and Rescue services.
The system is a complete Internet based solution, meaning no software resides on either the buyer’s or the supplier’s computers.
It provides both buyers and suppliers with a secure, cost effective and easy-to-use eTendering solution for the advertisement of new tender opportunities, and exchange of Quotation and Tender documentation on-line, ensuring a consistent, open and non-discriminatory tender process, which is more efficient and easier to manage for all.
The original eTendering software provided by supplier "Due North" is currently being phased out and replaced by new software provided by a new supplier "EU Supply".
Over the coming months Police and Fire and Rescue services will gradually migrate over to the new EU Supply system, meaning there will be a period of time where we have two separate systems, with two separate company registration areas, two separate new tender opportunity areas where new tenders are advertised, and two separate login areas where tenders can be accessed and responses submitted.
Suppliers will need to be registered on both systems during this transition period in order to continue to do business with all member authorities. Once all police and fire services have migrated over to the new EU Supply system, the original "Due North" system will be switched off.
Please use the links on the left hand side to register your company for FREE on both systems, search for and express an interest in new tender opportunities, access tender and quotation information for tenders you have expressed an interest in or been directly invited to tender for, and submit your completed response.
