Procurement process

If the Council accepts (even with modification) an expression of interest for a service, then a procurement exercise will be carried out to select the most appropriate service provider. The time between the expression of interest acceptance and the procurement process starting provides additional time for the groups who submitted expressions of interest to prepare to compete in the procurement exercise. The Council has agreed a process and timetable for dealing with expressions of interest. This timetable can be found in the Downloadable Documents below.

The procurement process will comply with the Public Sector and EU procurement rules. This process is open to competition and involves other potential providers (including private sector), not just those submitting the original expression of interest. Procurement processes can take some time to complete, and potential providers will need the resources and financial flexibility to continue engaging throughout the process.

The Public Services (Social Value) Act (external link) requires us to consider best value (including social, economic and environmental) in our procurement processes.
