procurement strategy
Procurement Strategy
  • Two key themes:
    • delivering efficiencies and quality
    • socially responsible procurement, engaging with local and regional suppliers to promote the local economy and taking account of the social and environmental impact of spending decisions
socially responsible procurement
Socially Responsible Procurement
  • Taking a holistic approach to the impact that the Council’s procurement activity has on
    • social (including equality),
    • environmental, and
    • economic issues.
  • For example, requiring bidders to complete long forms on environmental issues may deter small local companies from bidding.
