How We Buy Goods and Services
Cannock Chase Council aims to achieve Best Value in its procurement of goods and services. We are committed to the fair, equal and transparent treatment of all current and future providers.
Local and National Regulations for Procurement
The Council’s procurement activities are governed by EU Regulations, UK law and the Council’s own rules. These rules must be followed and are designed to promote non-discriminatory practice and provide transparency to tenderers.
Cannock Chase Council’s rules governing procurement are known as Procurement Regulations. These can be found in Part 4 Section 33 of the Constitution.
For contracts let in accordance with the EU Procurement Directives, the EU regulations will always take precedence where conflict arises.
The Council’s rules generally require all contracts over £50,000 to be subjected to a tendering process. Further information is provided in the Guide to Selling to the Council.
Staffordshire County Council’s Procurement Team
Staffordshire County Council’s Procurement Team supports Cannock Chase Council in its procurement activities and in particular administers the tendering process on our behalf. Further information on procurement can also be found on the County Council’s website.
