The Procurement Journey

Start your procurement journey

The procurement journey envolves three broad steps: Develop, Tender, Contract. Each of these steps changes depending on the value of your procurement. Once you have developed your brief for the tender (see the first step of Develop), you will know what you are buying, how much it costs and whether it is freely available in the market. This will help you choose the Procurement Route from the Welsh Government Procurement Route Planner.

There are 4 sections:


Having clear and transparent commercial pipelines and a good understanding of the market to plan for the procurement process

View Plan


Achieving flexible, efficient procurement processes that encourage broad participation and are open and accessible to all

View Define


Evaluating bidder compliance with exclusion grounds and selecting suitable suppliers for the contract

View Contract


Working with suppliers and managing the contract to ensure successful achievement of contractual outcomes

View Manage

We’ve brought together a range of resources to support you at each stage of your procurement journey.
