Procurement in local councils is controlled by a national strategy.
Solihull’s procurement policy
Working in accordance with the DECC procurement strategy, we have created our own procurement strategy, which should be referred to by all parties wishing to enter the tender process.
Eager to encourage bidding from all interested firms, we have signed the National Procurement Concordat for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises.
Complementing the Concordat is the Business Charter for Social Responsibility. This defines how we and our partners conduct business, in accordance to:
- equality and diversity
- managing risk
- sustainability and waste elimination
- corporate parenting
