Supplying the council

1. Overview

We would like the diversity of our suppliers to reflect the diversity of the town. We welcome bids from all businesses, whatever their size or background.

We have:

  • simplified Financial Regulations to remove the requirement for formal tenders below £150,000. Three quotes from capable suppliers are required below this threshold
  • consulted with local business groups to develop simple, streamlined procurement processes
  • hosted events for local businesses to provide face-to-face access to buyers, explain changes, discuss opportunities and to obtain feedback
  • adopted the National Procurement Concordat for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises
  • adopted the Government’s standard Pre-Qualification Questionnaire (PQQ) which means standard questions in quotes and tenders
  • implemented Supplying the South West for registering existing contracts and publishing opportunities for new contracts.
