Procurement

Selling us goods and services

When acquiring goods, works or services, different options are considered. If purchasing is identified as the best option we follow the procurement processes set out in our contract standing orders (CSOs).

If the procurement is covered by a corporate contract then officers must use that contract.

If there is no corporate contract then we classify the procurement depending on the total contract value:

  • Minor: procurements under £10,000
  • Routine: procurements from £10,000 to £100,000
  • Major: procurements over £100,000
