Tenders and Contracts
Information on Procurement and Purchasing
We operate with a small Procurement Team that supports the Council's Service Teams with their medium and high value contracts.
For these contracts we use the South East Business Portal to advertise current opportunities and display awarded contracts.
Please use the link above to register your business free of charge.
Low value day-to-day purchasing is the responsibility of each Service which is achieved via a network of "purchase coordinators" across the Council using simple ordering systems e.g. purchase orders, call-off orders or use of a Government Procurement Card (GPC MasterCard).
This approach encourages innovation and close cooperation between technical & commercial skill-sets within the Council to deliver the best cost, quality and service outcomes.
