ESS is using a new electronic tendering system.

Visit ESS supplier portal

The system’s supplier portal is used for publishing information, sharing documentation, managing communications and receiving proposals from tenderers in connection with ESS procurement activities. Suppliers interested in ESS procurement activities can register and maintain a Business Profile in the supplier portal.

Please contact procurement for further support.

26-28 February, Copenhagen

ESS is among the organisers of the Big Science Business Forum 2018 , the first one-stop shop for European companies and other stakeholders to learn about Europe's Big Science organisations' future investments and procurements worth billions of euros.  

Regarding the European Commission Implementing Decision (EU) 2015/1478 of 19 August 2015 establishing the European Spallation Source as a European Research Infrastructure Consortium (European Spallation Source ERIC), and as adopted by the Council of the European Spallation Source ERIC, the European Spallation Source ERIC Procurement Rules will govern procurement conducted by the Organisation.

The European Spallation Source ERIC Procurement Rules apply to all contracts for the provision of goods, works and services, concluded in writing between ESS and third parties and financed by the ESS budget.  

The European Spallation Source ERIC Procurement team has prepared guidelines for our suppliers on our procurement process.

These guidelines are available to suppliers and potential suppliers to ESS to advise and provide clarity on aspects of the procurement process. The guidelines focus on practical issues related to implementation of European Spallation Source ERIC Procurement Rules. This document [ESS-0064113] may be updated from time-to-time.

Business Profiles are used by ESS to create and maintain a supplier database in order to support ESS procurement activities.

Suppliers interested in ESS business opportunities can register a Business Profile in the supplier portal. Once registered, suppliers will be able to:

  • Maintain the information in the account
  • Select business areas of interest
  • Configure notification settings
  • Access information about procurement activities
  • Register interest in procurement procedures
  • Communicate with procurement staff
  • Submit electronic tenders and documentation

Business Profiles will not serve as an accreditation to ESS nor as a pre-qualification to participate in any future ESS tender exercise.
