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.
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 1.5MB).
Tendering for work
We advertise tenders on the Supply Hertfordshire e-tendering portal. Tender documents can be downloaded from the portal and any correspondence regarding tenders must be submitted via the portal. Suppliers must register to use the portal and will receive alerts about relevant tenders from ourselves and other Hertfordshire authorities.
For more information, please click on the headings below.
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.
