We undertake our purchasing and procurement activity in a fair, open and transparent manner.

All OGA contracts over £10,000 are awarded following competition between potential suppliers unless there are compelling reasons why competition cannot be used.

Where required, contracts are advertised on the Official Journal of the European Union's website in line with our obligation under the EU procurement directives. lf a contract is below the EU threshold it will be advertised on Contracts Finder.

The OGA uses free-to-register electronic procurement portals for all EU procurement. Suppliers are recommended to register on both Contracts Finder and the EU Portal which provide automatic alerts to procurement opportunities.
