Procurement and contracts

Procurement for the GLA is managed by Transport for London

More information can be found on the 'Suppliers and Contractors’ section of the TfL website. The TfL site also includes information on how to register as a supplier.

In addition we have produced 'Selling to the GLA' a document that gives an overview of our procurement processes and procedures to aid both individuals and companies who are looking for opportunities to work with the GLA:

All TfL procurement policy documents will apply to the GLA, with the exception of the Purchase Order Conditions of Contract and the Standard Services Contract.

Terms and conditions for the GLA’s purchase of supplies, services and/or works may vary from case to case. However, the standard GLA Purchase Order Conditions of Contract will apply unless a contract has been agreed and signed separately:

Contracts and Funding Code 

The Contracts and Funding Code details how the Mayor, Elected Members and Officers must ensure that they can account clearly for expenditure and that the money is spent effectively, efficiently and in accordance with the GLA’s legal powers, duties and governance framework.

The Contracts and Funding Code is available via the GLA procedures page.

Transparency: Details of existing GLA commercial contracts

A list of the GLA’s commercial contracts is accessible from TfL's ‘Financial transparency’ page.  The register includes the vendor name, contract value and end date.
