Education and social care transport service opportunities

How to become an education and social care transport service provider

Cambridgeshire County Council and Peterborough City Council have combined our education and social care transport service. This means any potential businesses wishing to provide education and social care transport services can now provide these services for both councils.

We want to work with good, reliable transport providers. We have hundreds of routes that potential suppliers can quote to deliver and we invite quotes at various times through the year. The services we require include main buses, mini-buses, taxis and specialist vehicles.

To be eligible to quote for education and social care transport service you must first register on our e-tendering system, ProContract, where you must complete an online questionnaire. Providers who meet the required quality standard move onto a list of approved suppliers.

Once approved, you will then be invited to quote for routes when they are opened to tender. The system lets new entrants join at any time and you can specify the service that you are interested in. Individual routes are tendered via mini competitions where you will compete to win the work based on set evaluation criteria.

View our advert for this opportunity on the ProContract website and register or log-in. At the bottom of the page there are various guidance documents to help get you started and submit your bid.

If you require any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.
