What is “procurement”?
Procurement is the process through which Wicklow County Council buys its supplies, services or works. Wicklow County Council purchases a vast amount across these categories. The Council’s procurement revenue spend in 2013 was approximately €31 million.

Sometimes, the Council procures goods, services, or works by Direct Invite. These will be contracts for supplies, services or works which are not included in alternative frameworks and which are below the limits of tender requirement. In these cases the Council will seek direct quotations from suppliers. Please click on the following link: Supplier Submission Form, if you wish to provide your company’s details to the Council for inclusion on a supplier listing. The inclusion of a supplier on the list does not constitute a commitment or guarantee to procure any products from the Supplier and does not confer any exclusivity on the Supplier.
