Procurement

The purpose of this web page 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.
