The Procurement Policies for Social Value, Sustainable Procurement and Modern Slavery are important documents for suppliers to familiarise themselves with before submitting tenders or quotes.
Suppliers will be asked to demonstrate within their tender submissions, alongside a technical quality assessment, how they propose to meet relevant criteria which could include reducing carbon emissions, improving the natural environment, supporting the local economy and economic development, supporting local people and empowering communities. The Social Value and related Sustainable Procurement policies provide details of the Council’s expectations.
The Council is committed to ethical purchasing and ensuring our supply chain operates in an ethical and sustainable way. Suppliers will need to demonstrate commitment to assessing and dealing with modern slavery in supplier operations at risk of modern slavery, including any sub-contractors. The Modern Slavery Procurement policy provides details of the Council’s expectations.
