We may also issue contracts for one-off or less frequently used goods and services.

Purchasing Policy/Procurement Policy

Wolverhampton Homes has a Procurement Strategy and Procurement Manual that supports the Council's contract standing orders and ensures that all contracts meet our legal obligations as well as following 'best practice'. As part of our tendering process we expect our suppliers to satisfy a range of requirements specific to the type of work being tendered. For construction related work this is likely to include demonstrating accreditation under the Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme (CHAS) or an equivalent Safety Scheme in Procurement (SSIP).
We have now decided to use an electronic sourcing system to support our procurement work. This will include advertising opportunities (including 'Find it in Wolverhampton') and running tender exercises. Pre-registration with Constructionline, Skills Development Recognition (SDR) or BiP Solutions Select Certify may reduce the time taken to pre-qualify for opportunities although additional pre-qualification requirements (such as Health & Safety accreditations) may be required.

Purchasing Practices/Procurement Procedures

Wolverhampton Homes always aims to ensure that the goods and services that we buy provide value for money and help to deliver savings to all parts of the organisation. These will then be used to maintain our current high standards of service in a time of budgetary restraint or to offer an improved range of services to our residents.

Wolverhampton Homes values the involvement of residents in the procurement process. Where possible we try to involve residents in specifying the goods or services needed and in the evaluation of potential suppliers during the competitive process.


Any potential suppliers interested in doing business with Wolverhampton Homes are required to register their company details within Delta eSourcing. Enter 'suppliers' and then 'e-tendering'. After initial registration, suppliers will be issued with a username and password to the Delta eSourcing site. If you have previously registered with Delta, log into Delta eSourcing using your existing username and password. Once you have accessed the site, click on the Select Certify tab to complete your supplier profile. You will need to complete the profile in full and then submit to the database, quoting the access code for the Wolverhampton Homes Contact List for Suppliers which is Z459W7DK6D. If you need support to complete your online registration, the Delta helpdesk will be pleased to assist.email: helpdesk@delta-esourcing.com or telephone number: 0845 2707050.

Any procedures carried out following the publication of a contract notice via OJEU or during an actual tender procedure, will have a response list number for each provision. The response list number will be stated in the Contract notice or advert. Your profile should be linked to the relevant response number - this then becomes your expression of interest/pre-qualification questionnaire which will be scored. It is highly recommended that you update your profile frequently as it is used at the pre-qualification stage.

Registration is not a guarantee that any contracts will be awarded to your company, it is however a pre-requisite for doing business with Wolverhampton Homes. Wolverhampton Homes only requests that you submit your profile at 'Certify' status, this service is Free of Charge.
