Contracts and Procurement

Council procurement

We aim to achieve the best value for money and make doing business with us as simple and accessible as possible.

We purchase a range of goods and services from third parties. The majority of this expenditure is covered by formal contracts.  For the majority of these contracts, invitations to tender are publicly advertised. For information on tenders currently available please register on our procurement portal

Our Constitution sets out the broad framework within which we operate. This includes our Contract and Procurement Regulation (Part 6F), which sets specific rules that all officers involved in the procurement process must follow.

Our current contracts register provides the information as required for transparency agenda.

Please also see our terms and conditions of contracts for the supply of goods and services.

The Council has robust policies in place to guard against fraud, bribery and corruption and expects the same of its suppliers. Please find out more by downloading our Supplier Code of Conduct
