Procurement Strategy 2011/2015
This strategy outlines our aims for 2011-15 and shows how procurement will contribute towards achieving the priorities set down in the Council Business Plan. The current budgetary reductions for the council presents additional challenges for the authority and this document shows the contribution procurement will make in ensuring these challenges are successfully managed. It is our duty to ensure this money is spent in the most effective way and delivers value for money.
Contract Procedure Rules
Leeds City Council's Contract Procedure Rules and Code of Practice are the procedures dictating the way in which procurement (purchasing) should be carried out within the Council. There are a number of internal policies and many laws that govern procurement within the United Kingdom. These also encompass the EU Public Procurement Directives. The procurement process must be carried out in a particular way and records of procurement activity, any resulting contract(s) (if applicable) and any associated reports, waivers or approvals have to be kept for specific lengths of time for legal reasons.
