Get involved – Forming a supply chain

National Highways is building on its track record of successfully delivering major projects by bringing in partners and expertise from across the infrastructure industry. Learn more about the current bidders and how they will form their local supply chain

We want all interested suppliers to be well prepared as we assess tenders for major contracts and bidders begin forming their supply chains.

Can I get involved even if I’m a small or local business?

Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) play a key role in developing the national economy and local communities. We want to ensure SMEs and local businesses play a key part in the project’s supply chain and this is in line with the Government’s aspiration of ensuring 33% of spend is with SMEs.

The first stages of the procurement process for the three main works contracts focus on Tier-one entities. A Tier-one is a large multidiscipline organisation that can manage and deliver big projects.
