The town council procures a number of one-off services each year. We recognise the benefit to the local economy of using local businesses and SMEs and will make every effort to promote local business when undertaking procurement.
We require contractors who can be called on to provide routine or emergency services, including but not limited to:
- General builders
- Tree & hedge contractors
- Grave diggers
- Memorial masons
- Plant hirers
- Plumbing & heating engineers
- Vehicle & machine service engineers
We are required to take steps to get value for money and best value. Whilst the businesses we work with will compete on price, they also compete on quality. This means we are not always bound to select the cheapest supplier.
The council will only enter into a contract with a supplier if it is satisfied as to the supplier’s suitability, eligibility, capacity, financial standing and technical/qualified capabilities to undertake the contract. Officers undertake appropriate due diligence tests to ensure a supplier meets our standards. Such tests might include taking references, credit checks, obtaining copies of relevant certificates and or qualifications.
If your business would like to be added to our list of approved suppliers, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and request our approved contractor form, which you should complete and return by email or click on the link below:
Being accepted on an approved list does not guarantee an award of contract.
