Contracts Register

twobThe Contracts Register Service is a web-based system that provides the facility to update and maintain contract data while sharing this information across the Eastern region to facilitate and promote collaborative procurement practises. There are search facilities to view the contract data and that data can also be easily downloaded into a spreadsheet. Contracts can be easily and quickly uploaded and there is also the facility to add contracts to the system in bulk if required.

The RCE CRS is designed to underpin collaborative working between public sector organisations and to support the ongoing development of the shared services agenda. It does this in many ways, including:

  • tracking and managing the ownership, terms and lifecycle of key contracts
  • delivering accurate and up-to-date information on current and future contract information
  • providing on-line management information
  • supporting the planning and coordination of future contract activity, including alignment
  • searching and reporting on current and future contracts by category, supplier, value, date etc, including UNSPCC classification
  • identifying framework and other shared contracts which can be accessed by other boroughs
  • allowing information such as OJEU notices, contract terms, specifications and other supporting documentation to be downloaded
  • providing Alert facilities to enable the contract owner to specify how many months ahead of the contract expiry date an alert email is sent out
