In order to carry out its day-to-day business, the Council procures goods, services and works from many different external sources (suppliers), and we must do so in a way that secures the best possible value for money for the taxpayers of Devon.
Procurement is an important driving force in Devon County Council for identifying and realising cost efficiencies and guiding the improvement of Value for Money in the Council’s £460m annual procurement spend.
Procurement also works closely with local business support organisations and public sector business support units to ensure improved access to business opportunities with the Council and assist small to medium enterprises (SMEs) and third sector organisations to understand the tender process and produce quality responses to invitations to tender.
