Since Hybu Cig Cymru is wholly owned by the Welsh Government and receives public funds (through the statutory levy and Government grant funding) we are required to comply with EU Procurement rules, as set out in the UK under The Public Contracts Regulations 2006.
The rules require services with a value over £172,514 (as at 1 January 2014) over the contract period to be advertised through the EU Official Journal. The relevant invitation to tender will also be placed on this website. For those services below this threshold, we follow our internal procurement procedures. This means that for any services with a value over £50,000, the invitation to tender will be placed on the HCC website under new opportunities. For certain services,
HCC may enter into framework agreements with a pool of suppliers for a three-year period. Details of these are under framework agreements.
