Information about procurement, bidding for contracts with us, can be found on the following pages.

We spend in excess of £130 million per annum with external suppliers.

Our procurement requirements are diverse and wide ranging, from stationery to the construction of new buildings.

Procurement is the process by which the Council controls, monitors and completes the necessary acquisition of goods, services and works that enable it to deliver its services and meet its corporate objectives.

We are accountable to the tax payer for its spending activity and as such have a duty to undertake procurement within the principles of economy, efficiency and effectiveness and in accordance with all relevant UK legislation. 

We employ robust procurement processes to ensure that public money is spent in a fair, auditable, open and transparent manner. The Commissioning and Procurement Team supports officers in delivering procurement and can provide information and advice to suppliers that may be interested in bidding for Council contracts.

This section of the website has been developed to provide useful information to suppliers and members ​of the public, including tips for successful bid writing, access to business opportunity adverts and links to other useful websites.
