Supplying to WCHG
WCHG uses the ‘In-Tend’ electronic tendering system and all tendering opportunities will be published via the In-Tend portal. Use of the portal is free of charge. Please visit the link below to register:
As the UK has left the EU, we are not bound by EU Procurement legislation and no longer publish tenders in OJEU (“TED”).
However, we are required to follow UK Procurement legislation (“Public Contracts Regulations”) and advertise tenders over this threshold in the Government’s Find-A-Tender Service (“FTS”); in addition, any tender opportunities which are over the WCHG tendering threshold will also generally be found on Contracts Finder (links below). But please note that all tender submissions must be via the In-Tend portal.
WCHG also uses Frameworks from a number of consortia/contracting bodies, including - but not limited to – the following: Crown Commercial Services, JV North, ProcurePlus, Cirrus, Northern Housing Consortium, Fusion 21, Procurement For Housing, ConstructionLine.

Wythenshawe Community Housing Group (WCHG) recognises that our suppliers can have a significant social, economic and environmental impact. We want all organisations bidding for work with us to consider how they can reduce any negative impacts and maximise positive impacts.
All WCHG tenders with a contract value of £50,000 or more will ask about social value.
Along with others in the Greater Manchester Housing Providers, we have produced a toolkit to help people understand how they deliver social value.
