PCH is committed to Plymouth and the South West and we work with businesses from the local area to help the region grow and prosper.
By keeping our business local where we can we support our communities by creating ongoing employment opportunities, as well as apprentices and jobs for young workers in local areas. At the heart of every decision, we consider how we can achieve value for money for our residents as well as benefiting the community.
PCH is part of the Plymouth Procurement Forum which is a group of organisations based in the city who use Plymouth suppliers where possible. To find out more about the values we consider when deciding on suppliers read our Social Value Toolkit.
We use the e-tendering system 'ProContract' for all our new tender opportunities.
If you want to tender for an opportunity or get alerts about new opportunities, you will need to register with ProContract. Registration is free and will give you access to tender information from other organisations in the South West, including those on the Supplying the South West portal and the Housing Procurement Portal.
If you need help using the portal, please call ProContract’s dedicated customer service line on 01670 597136 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
