Selling to the council

The council is a major purchaser of goods and services and spends over £180 million a year on obtaining a vast range of supplies, works and services from the external market.

Naturally many organisations will want to sell or provide their services and supplies to the council, so we have put together this Selling to the council guide to assist suppliers and potential providers who wish to do so, by:

  • outlining the rules that the council must follow
  • explaining where to find details of opportunities to supply the council
  • explaining how to tender for the council’s business
  • explaining what is expected of you when undertaking work for us

To bid successfully for our business, you need to understand our tendering process. The process involves several stages, although not all stages will apply to all tenders.
