We spend over £70 million a year obtaining a range of supplies, services and works from the external market. We do this to ensure competition, openness, fairness and accountability. It is our duty to secure value for money in our commissioning and procurement activities. 

Procurement strategy

Our  Commissioning Procurement Strategy 2019-2024 (PDF 1MB) sets out how we intend to work with partners and suppliers to deliver good quality, value for money services, works and supplies. The strategy is supported by our  Commissioning and Procurement Standing Orders 2019-2024 (PDF 1MB).

Contract register

We have a wide range of supplies, services and works contracts in force at any one time. The key contracts are identified in our contract register, which is updated and published every quarter.

Transparency and open data

As an organisation we understand the importance of being open and transparent about the decisions we take and how and where money is spent.

The 2015 Local Transparency Code sets out a number of key principles that councils must follow to ensure they publish information in a way that is helpful and relevant.
