​​​​​Introduction to Council Procurement

Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council spends in excess of £100 million per annum with external suppliers. The Councils 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.

The Council is accountable to the tax payer for its spending activity and as such has a duty to undertake procurement within the principles of economy, efficiency and effectiveness and in accordance with all relevant UK and EU legislation. 

The Council employs 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 Councils website has been developed by the Commissioning and Procurement Team 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.
