Procurement strategy

The council spends in excess of £200 million per year on procuring works, goods and services through a variety of procurement and contracting arrangements covering a wide and diverse spectrum of council functions.

This strategy will align to the council's customer strategy which is fundamental in the understanding of our customer and business needs that will shape the way we deliver our services as a commissioning-led council.

Notes on the above data:

  • Our finance system does not identify periods where an invoice has been in dispute, or on hold. Therefore, the above interest value that has been calculated is overstated in this regard.
  • 2015/16 is a ‘part’ year (covering Dec to Mar only) as there was a change of financial system during that year.
