Corporate Procurement

Value for Money

The Council spends more than £100 million a year on a diverse range of goods, services and works programmes, representing significant opportunities for a variety of organisations across the business sector.

As residents have a right to expect that their money is spent wisely Corporate Procurement delivers value for money by:

  • improving services
  • reducing costs
  • simplifying processes
  • increasing collaborative opportunities
  • ensuring compliance
  • reducing risk.

Collaborative Contracts

We work with public sector procurement specialists Scotland Excel (Category B Contracts) and Scottish Procurement (Category A Contracts) on collaborative opportunities to aggregate public sector spend in order to provide best value and value for money.

Local Contracts

Additional one-off or framework contracts (Category C Contracts) are agreed between the Council and suppliers, as a result of in-house tenders. Sometimes these may be completed in partnership with another council (Category C1 Contracts).
