We spend around £14m a year on a wide range of goods, works and services, using lots of different kinds of organisations. These include small and local companies, blue chip organisations, not-for-profit organisations and in-house provision.
The type of provision we use is decided at an options appraisal stage of our procurement process and focuses on what method will deliver value for money to our community.
