Selling to the Council

The Council has both a centralised and decentralised procurement structure.  The Procurement Officer is charged with taking a strategic approach to procurement, but the more specialised purchasing is devolved across the various Council departments.

Our contracts are procured via an on-line portal at The portal provides, free of charge, a searchable list of contract opportunities. Registered suppliers receive a free contract alert service, ensuring that they are kept up to date on the latest opportunities. 

It is also useful for suppliers to be on various other procurement portals where tenders may be advertised including in particular the Government's Contracts Finder website at:

Existing suppliers

Any changes to supplier information, for example bank account details, will only be performed once the details have been verified directly with the company requesting the change.
