For below threshold procurements, in addition our procurement procedures ensure the processes comply with the principles of non-discrimination, equal treatment and transparency in dealing with suppliers.
Due to the high volume low value of specialist contracts it is not possible to advertise every procurement opportunity that falls under this category. At NIE Networks, we are keen to engage new suppliers and actively encourage new suppliers to make their services known to us.
All new suppliers working on our network will require specific NIE Networks safety training before any work can be undertaken. This training is required for all staff and is mandatory in order to be successful in any competition.
