Doing Business with Worcestershire County Council
The Council spends approximately £270 million per annum on a
varied range of works, services and goods. It is the Council's duty
to secure best value for money in procuring its works,
services and supplies and to continually improve quality.
We have recognised the role that Procurement has to play in
achieving our social economic and environmental targets, which are
set out in our Worcestershire's
Community Strategy (PDF 1.11 MB). We are committed to
non-discrimination in our procurement, with fair and transparent
procedures and equal treatment of all potential suppliers.
We want to work with our contractors and suppliers to encourage
them to identify and minimise the environmental impacts of their
activities including the production of waste, consumption of energy
and the use of environmentally damaging materials. This can be
achieved through awareness raising and encouraging the development
of an environmental policy and environmental management system.
Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) and Black and Minority (BME)
We want to help increase the capacity of local Small and Medium
Enterprises (SME) and Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) firms,
helping them become 'Fit to Compete' and secure contracts from main
service providers. It is hoped that this will generate increased
workloads, which will in turn help local employment and create
other community benefits.
