Our vision

Procurement is an essential vehicle enabling the council to fulfil its responsibility to provide cost effective and efficient services which deliver the council’s priorities.

The council’s aim is to promote effective procurement across the whole organisation using innovative, sustainable and modern procurement practices, harnessing a culture of continuous improvement, whilst remaining flexible to a rapidly changing environment and new models of and partnerships in the delivery of services. 

This Corporate Procurement Strategy sets out the objectives to be achieved and the framework within which procurement will work to deliver value for money across services and contribute to the achievements of the council’s priorities.

The Corporate Procurement Strategy is currently being updated and will be here soon.
