How to do business with Magnox Ltd

How to find and apply for opportunities at Magnox.

Magnox’s work can only be achieved through strong partnership with the supply chain.

Our suppliers form an integral part of the Magnox team which is committed to delivering a diverse and challenging programme of work across 12 sites in the UK. With each site at a different stage in its lifecycle, the requirements range from conventional services such as scaffolding and demolition, to the more specialist areas of waste retrieval and decommissioning.

Procurement pledge

Magnox 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.

Finding contract opportunities

Magnox does not operate a preferred supplier list. We use an approach based on the value of the contract, and whether a public-sector framework already exists that can be used. Where existing frameworks cannot be used contract opportunities are awarded through open competition in line with the general European Treaty principles of non-discrimination, equal treatment and transparency, in order to ensure we provide value for money to the tax payer.

The Magnox Procurement Plan details procurement opportunities at the Magnox sites over the next 12 months. Published monthly, the detail contained in the plan is subject to review and change to meet the needs of the business. If you have any queries regarding procurement opportunities and/or contracts that have been awarded, please contact the named point of contact in the plan.

There may be opportunities to work with our suppliers to support our delivery, The procurement plan includes the names of suppliers who are currently tendering for opportunities and the name of suppliers where work has been awarded within the previous three months. In addition some opportunities with Tier 2 suppliers are listed in Contracts Finder.

Find an opportunity with Magnox

There are different ways to access contract opportunities with Magnox:

  • Framework Contracts awarded by Crown Commercial Services

Magnox procures contracts through frameworks awarded by Crown Commercial Services (CCS) or other procurement hubs which can be used by the wider public sector.

  • Complete Tender Management (CTM)

Magnox and the other site license companies within the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority estate use CTM to advertise and manage all tendered opportunities. To use CTM you will need to register your company. Once you are registered on the system, you can use it to manage your tendering activities.

  • Contracts Finder

Procurements over the OJEU financial thresholds are also automatically advertised on the government’s Contracts Finder portal and can be found on the OJEU website.

Invoices and payments

We operate a strict “no purchase order, no pay” policy. All invoices will need a Purchase Order reference. Your procurement contact should be able to supply this if you do not already have it.

Payment Performance Report

We publish payment performance reports on a six-monthly basis. The figures included in the report highlight our promptness in paying our suppliers and are expressed in percentage of payments made within 30 days and payments made over 30 days.
