The purpose of these pages is to provide advice to prospective suppliers on how to do business with the Council, explain the method of purchasing and provide some guidance on the key factors that the Council has to consider in conducting its procurement.
We have a statutory duty to ensure that any procurement represents the most cost effective, best value for money solution.
The vast majority of expenditure is covered by formal contractual arrangements for which invitations to tender are publicly advertised.
If you want to find out more about current and forthcoming tender opportunities, visit the tender opportunities section of this site.
