Public Procurement is the buying of goods, services and works by government departments and other statutory bodies including Education and Training Boards in accordance with procurement rules and regulations.

The aim is:  

  • Obtaining best value-for-money in procuring the goods, services and works it needs.  
  • Compliance with public procurement rules and regulations and internal purchasing procedures. 

 Centralised Tendering and Procurement Frameworks 

It is Government policy that public bodies, where possible, should make use of central procurement frameworks and contracts that are put in place by the Office of Government Procurement (OGP).  These central procurement frameworks and contracts are designed to optimise benefits to the public service through the strategic aggregation of its buying power.    

Where there is no Framework established by the OGP, Cavan and Monaghan Education and Training Board may set up their own tender competition for goods/services or draw of other collaborative tenders in place.
