As a public body, we follow strict rules in the way that we invite, evaluate and award contracts. The purpose is to ensure openness and transparency in the way we do business with suppliers, to ensure:
- The proper use of public money
- That we meet our statutory duty to achieve best value through the procurement process
- Compliance with the law particularly The Public Contracts (Scotland) Regulations 2015 and The Procurement (Scotland) Regulations 2016
- Equity of treatment through the procurement process for all suppliers
- Probity through compliance with Council Standing Orders Scheme of Tender Procedures and Financial Regulations
- Accountability, openness and transparency through the audit process
- The protection of the council and its employees from any legal challenge or allegation of impropriety in its business dealings.
We've divided what we buy as a council into five categories. A Category Manager is responsible for all external expenditure in each category.
