National Procurement Strategy

National Procurement Strategy for Local Government

Councils can improve the quality, delivery and cost effectiveness of local services through better procurement practices. We support them in finding more effective, prudent and innovative ways of procuring services through the National Procurement Strategy.

Small local businesses may offer added benefits, for example.

Councils also need to take account of statutory requirements, including EU Procurement Directives.

Increasingly councils work in partnership to procure and deliver services. This might be with other partners in the local area - in the public, private and/or voluntary and community sectors - or with other councils and organisations beyond their boundaries through sharing services.
