Department for Transport


How we buy:

The MCA’s procurement branch is based at its Southampton headquarters. Its primary purpose is to ensure that the agency secures the best value for money in all of its purchases and, where necessary, in compliance with the European Procurement Directives.

The branch achieves these goals by identifying the most cost effective methods of purchasing and contracting for a wide range of goods and services.

This is done by:

As with all Department for Transport contracts, you will not be asked to pay a tender fee.
