The importance of effective procurement has never been greater for local government. The demand for public services is increasing, while resources are drastically reducing. The pressure to find greater efficiencies and improve productivity is driving councils to look for different ways to deliver better outcomes for local people.
This strategy sets out our vision for procurement and our priorities for the next 3 years to 2025, incorporating the latest government procurement legislation and initiatives, and the council’s priorities, aims and objectives. It is a statement of the procurement commitments of the borough council.
