Clients should complete the WRNEW01 form and forward to the relevant email account as detailed on the form. Your draft Specification should accompany the completed form (view guidance on writing Specifications). A helpful guide is provided to explain important sections of the form. 

If you have never been involved in a procurement before,  read our helpful Client Journey guide to understand your role and responsibilities. 

Existing Contract Work Request Form

The 'Existing Contract Work Request Form' (WREX01) is used to request CPD Supplies and Services Division (SSD) to provide advice or facilitate a variation to an existing contract. Clients should download the WREX01 form and forward it to the relevant email address.
