The purpose of these web pages is to provide
advice to prospective suppliers on how to do business with the
Council, let you know when contracts are due for renewal and tell
you about our procurement strategy.
All contracts are awarded on the basis of the
most economically advantageous solution for the Council
taking into account whole life costs, quality and sustainability.
Local firms are encouraged to compete for contracts.
The vast majority of our business is covered
by formal contractual arrangements for which invitations to tender
are publicly advertised.
