Successful Working Partnerships
LLWR’s priorities are to attract and retain suppliers to whom our business is important and to encourage healthy competition. In addition, we aim to promote the use of local suppliers and Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs), wherever possible.
We are also seeking to rationalise the size and scope of our supply chain, whilst developing improved working relationships and longer term supply chain planning.
Supply Chain Charter
LLWR has given its commitment to the Supply Chain Charter for nuclear decommissioning sites. The Charter aims to foster good working relations across the NDA estate supply chain, with all parties signing up to a set of principles encouraging mutually beneficial and rewarding relationships.

LLWR has signed up to the government’s pledge which lays out a number of initiatives that are designed to improve the way business is conducted with the private sector.
Payment Performance Report
We publish payment performance reports on a quarterly basis. The figures included in the report highlight our promptness in paying our suppliers and are expressed in numbers of payments made within 5 days of due date, within 30 days and payments made over 30 days late. The performance figures are also expressed in monetary terms.
The ISO certification makes customers and suppliers aware that LLWR maintains their 3rd Party Certification to the requirements of ISO 9001, ISO 14001:2015 and OHSAS 18001:2007, and provides part of the arrangements in place to comply with Nuclear Site Licence Condition 17.
LLWR’s Procurement Plan identifies the various opportunities available to the supply chain in the short to medium term.
There are several different ways to access contract opportunities with LLWR:
1. Complete Tender Management (CTM)
Access the CTM system
To be able to use CTM you will need to register your company.
2. Contracts Finder
Procurements over the OJEU financial thresholds are also automatically advertised on the government’s Contracts Finder.
3. NDA Collaborative Procurement
LLWR participates in collaborative procurements under the Shared Service Alliance. This allows us to aggregate demand and standardise procurement requirements across all the Site Licence Companies (SLCs) and other participating entities within the NDA Group, delivering value and providing more attractive opportunities to the supply chain.
4. Business & Technical Services Marketplace
LLWR has established the Business & Technical Services (BATS) Marketplace, on behalf of the NDA group, to deliver professional services across 13 business categories. BATS replaces the Business Services Marketplace.
LLWR has used the Dynamic Purchasing System procedure to deliver this opportunity, which offers a simple and efficient procurement route for both buyers and suppliers. For further information, please access the CTM system which lists the 13 BATS categories on the ‘Public tenders’ page.
