CWC has been developed with our local area businesses in mind. The idea behind the portal is to deliver more work and contract opportunities to our local businesses, driving growth in our sub region’s economy.

Special attention has been given to some of our areas larger organisations (JLR, Severn Trent, National Grid, Fanuc, Autins, Coventry & Warwick Universities etc etc) to encourage them to engage local businesses within their supply chains and give them the ability to receive bids and quotes from local business.

The portal has been designed to encompass all opportunities whether a business/organisation is looking to fill a multimillion pound contract to a business requiring a post it note supplier.

Buyers can post an opportunity for any type of goods or services from widgets to HR requirements. There is no limit to the number of opportunities a business can post. The tool is to be used to source all requirements. All free of charge.

Suppliers can view outline opportunities but must subscribe to view and bid in detail. Once subscribed (subscription fee starts from as little as £199.00pa)suppliers will automatically receive opportunities that match their preferences.
