Have your say on our new procurement strategy

This news article was published more than a year ago. Some of the information may no longer be accurate.

Published: 23/10/2013

We spend over £170m each year on goods, works and services provided by external organisations. We recognise that we have a responsibility to make sure this spending represents the best possible value for money and also enables us to support local businesses.

As all council departments depend on external organisations to provide goods, works, and services, it is important that we maintain a clear strategy for selecting, receiving and managing these contracts and resources.

This proposed strategy is an integrated procurement and commissioning strategy and will set out our commissioning vision and objectives for the next four years. It is designed to ensure that we continue to provide and arrange innovative and flexible, quality goods and services that are responsive to the needs of our community.
