Procurement

Mayo, Sligo and Leitrim Education and Training Board is committed to operate its procurement under the national procurement model agreed by government, and the principles of corporate governance outlined in the Code of Practice for the Governance of ETBs (CL 0002/2019). This includes use of central and sectoral procurement frameworks and contracts which offer value for money and efficiencies.

In instances where the national procurement model does not have an appropriate mechanism in place for a particular purchase (framework/drawdown), it is the intention of Mayo, Sligo and Leitrim Education and Training Board to comply with the relevant Public procurement guidelines available from the OGP website www.ogp.gov.ie and sectorally agreed policies and procedures available from the ETBI website at www.etbi.ie.

We aim to engage with all stakeholders with a view to adding value to the Education and Training Board (ETB) through procurement.
