https://www.cheshire.police.uk/police-fo...

 

You are recommended to register on the Bluelight Emergency Services
eSourcing Site which can be found at https://bluelight.eu-supply.com  To
register, click the “Register Company” link on the left to start the
registration process.  A user guide can be obtained once registered from
within the system.   Registration is FREE and as the e-sourcing site is a
complete internet based e-tendering solution, all you need is internet
access, no special software or equipment is required.

 

You are able to view advertised opportunities without registering by
clicking the current tender opportunities link, however to express
interest you will need to login.

 

When registering it is recommended that you use a generic email address
e.g. [email address] and a job title e.g. Sales Administrator
rather than individual staff names and email addresses to prevent any
inconvenience when staff changes occur.  Please use an email address which
is regularly monitored so you do not miss out on notification of
opportunities or alerts during a tender process.

 

Once registered you will be able to view and express interest in tender
opportunities from Cheshire Constabulary as well as those from other
participating Authorities. You will also receive automatic email
notifications from this site of any future opportunities advertised
