Our approach to procurement
Contract procedure rules and policies
Like all public bodies, we must act in accordance with the requirements of public procurement policy
Our procurement procedures will vary depending on the type of service or product being purchased and its value
The main requirement for public procurement is to achieve value for money, usually through competition between potential suppliers. We embed a number of key principles into our procurement practices including; equal treatment, proportionality and transparency.
Our contract procedure rules govern the way the council procures and manages contracts and are a part of the constitution. If you wish to have a copy, please email us.
