Tenders & Contracts

Councils spend almost £40 billion externally every year. The procurement department help to ensure that the best value for money is obtained.

Correct procurement strategy is becoming increasingly important, during these challenging times.

A Procurement strategy actively moves towards improving the quality of services delivered to the public.

We aim to provide advice and guidance to suppliers on how to do business with us and other organisations. We provide opportunities for small, medium and large companies to become more aware of procurement activities and tendering opportunities, not just for ourselves but regionally and nationally.

Over the past number of years we have been embracing e-Commerce in all of our business transactions. All of our purchase orders are sent to suppliers electronically, as well as the majority of our tenders being conducted via electronic methods, with the view that 100% will be electronic by 2018.
