Public Contracts Regulations
Public Contracts Regulations are the rules that govern all public sector contracts. The rules are intended to support non-discriminatory and fair trading. There are different requirements depending on the value, type and nature of the contract.
Financial thresholds apply to all contracts with an aggregated value at, or above, a specified amount.
For procurement below that value we apply the requirements of our Constitution in meeting the principles of Regulations.
Our Contracts Register can be found on the ProContract website - Wokingham Borough Council Contracts Register.
How we advertise tenders and contracts
Contract or tender opportunities are generally advertised through the relevant channel(s) according to the value and nature of each project. Possible channels may include the following:
Any procurements which had commenced prior to the end of the Transition Period and where notices had already been published on the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) website will have the respective notices also published on the OJEU website including award notices, amendment notices and corrigenda.

Procurement of Apprenticeship Training and Assessment Providers
Wokingham Borough Council is recruiting apprentices using the apprenticeship levy to pay for the off the job training. An apprenticeship is a genuine job with an accompanying skills development programme. We will choose providers for their proven quality of delivery and successful outcomes, flexibility of delivery to meet the business and apprentice needs, contribution to the development of the local economy and good value for money.
Training and Assessment Providers will be procured by us in a number of ways:
- Through the Crown Commercial Service Apprenticeship Training and Related Services framework agreement
- Through the Nottingham City Directory of Approved Apprenticeship Providers (DAAP)
- From the approved providers list on the National Apprenticeship Service 'Find Apprenticeship Training' website
- Recommendations and positive testimonies from other Local Authorities where appropriate
We recommend that providers, who would like to be considered for delivery of apprenticeship programmes, should sign up to the Crown Commercial Service Framework or the Nottingham City DAAP. They should also ensure that their offer shows on the National Apprenticeship Service 'Find Apprenticeship Training' website.
