The Council must be satisfied that tender opportunities are being exposed to competition through reasonable levels of publicity (for example by advertising in local and trade/professional journals). From 27 January 2014 all opportunities to tender, where the Council's contract regulations require a public advertisement, will be published on the eSourcing portal, capitalEsourcing:
In addition to capitalEsourcing, the Council may advertise in the following publications:
- The official journal of the European Union - this is required for any contract covered by the regulations implementing EU legislation, although the Borough may use this publication voluntarily if it deems appropriate
- public notices in the Kensington and Chelsea Informer
- trade journals
