Procurement policy

The way in which we purchase goods, works and services for the Council is governed by our Constitution (Contract Procedure Rules, Financial Procedure Rules and Financial Standing Orders). It is our duty to secure value for money for the Council on behalf of taxpayers whilst ensuring the quality of services provided. Our aim is to be open, fair and transparent in how we select, appoint and award contracts.

Ryedale, Selby and Scarborough Councils jointly spend £53 million every year on the supplies, services and works needed to deliver services to the public. How well we procure those requirements has a critical impact on our performance and ability to provide value for money.

The Joint Procurement Strategy sets out the over-arching framework, which will help to ensure that, together, our procurement delivers excellent value and supports the attainment of each councils' priorities and visions. For more details please see links panel to the right.

Suppliers - find business and tender opportunities with the council by registering (for free) at Yortender. Please choose from the links panel for the Tenders and Contracts Council Service that you require.

We have produced some information to help potential contractors and suppliers understand how we are working towards the integration of Equality & Diversity with procurement.

For further information, please contact the Procurement Officer.
