"Procurement" is the process of acquiring goods, works and services, covering both acquisition from third parties and from in-house providers. The process spans the whole cycle from identification of needs, through to the end of a services contract or the end of the useful life of an asset. It involves options appraisal and the critical 'make or buy' decision which may result in the provision of services in-house in appropriate circumstances.
- We DO NOT maintain select lists. The contract officer will produce a short list for each contract before it goes out to tender.
- We do use Construction line but this does NOT preclude any contractor who is not a member being considered for any contract
- We also just have one main building (Council Offices, Codsall) and no housing stock as this is the responsibility of Housing Plus (South Staffordshire Housing Association).
- South Staffordshire District Council have Standard Terms and Conditions for the Supply of Goods and Services
