Procuring a new Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprise Infrastructure Support Service

Manchester Health and Care Commissioning and Manchester City Council have been working together to review, co-design and consult with the voluntary, community and social enterprise sector on the development of a new infrastructure support service for the city.

These processes have concluded and the procurement process is now open.

If you are interested in potentially bidding for the infrastructure service contract, you can find all the information on the Chest North West Portal.  This is the ProContract procurement portal and in order to bid for the contract you must be registered on the Chest. This process is open until 8 July 2019 to submit a bid. Due to the way the online Chest system works, the closing time for this is 11am on the 8 July.

All enquiries relating to this procurement process need to be made via the Chest North West Portal. If you are having any issues with accessing the system please contact the Our Manchester Funds Programme Management Team by telephone on 0161 234 3316 / 5475 or by email on and they will do their best to resolve them.
