Contracts & Tenders

As a strategic agency for the museums, archives and libraries sector, MLA often has a requirement to commission pieces of work from an external body, which might be another organisation, a consultancy partnership or an individual consultant.

Before commissioning such work, MLA will estimate the likely value of the contract to be awarded. In cases where the likely value is estimated to be greater than 20,000 (including VAT), MLA will embark on a process of open competitive tender. Part of this process involves making the Project Brief available on this section of the website.

In cases where the likely value of a contract is estimated to be less than 20,000, but where MLA feels that there would be an advantage in operating an open tender process, we will do so. Work shown in this section of the website may fall into either category.

In addition to the briefing documents associated with current invitations to tender, we provide links here to ongoing projects, to the documentary outputs of completed projects, and to archived tender briefing documents from past projects.

For further information or queries about MLA's tendering and contractual process, please contact Tynan Rodger by emailing tynan.rodger@mla.gov.uk
