Selling to the council

Every year we spend millions of pounds on a range of goods and services from third parties. Naturally, many organisations will want to sell goods, works and services to us.

The following step-by-step guide has been designed to help potential suppliers and contractors to understand how we currently buys goods, services and works and help you to increase your chances of finding out about opportunities and bidding for work.

We will update this guide as and when required to ensure that it is kept up to date with Corporate Governance and EU Procurement Financial Regulations.

You can register as a supplier in our database, and we will invite you to submit bids for tender opportunities.
