Our Council is part of a supply chain. To deliver our services to the community, we too must purchase other goods and services.
Because it is public money we spend, our purchasing and procurement practices are stringent. We are required by law to ensure this.
We have a strong culture of wanting to purchase goods locally. This is to strengthen our local economy. However, we must have fair and reasonable procedures for doing so.
Businesses wanting to provide their services to us must first understand our procurement practices. The information in this section explains the pathways for how you might secure work with us.
