Are there any guidelines for selecting suppliers?

Our rules state the minimum number of local businesses we will contact for a quote when specific opportunities arise. These are as follows:

For supplies and services - anything under £75,000 we will contact at least 2 local suppliers and 2 non local suppliers and invite them to tender

For works/construction - anything under £150,000 we will contact at least 3 local companies and invite them to tender

You will need to register your business with us to be able to access these opportunities.

Note: This policy does not guarantee that local businesses will secure council contracts. All businesses will have to demonstrate that they are competitive on both cost and quality.
