The Authority aims to establish a single key partner who will work with us to deliver a procurement service that will ensure the Authority complies with its internal policies and procedures, Government procurement policy and UK / EU procurement regulations.
The outputs of this project are to commission a procurement service that fits the needs of the Authority.
The ‘Procurement Partner’ will provide both an operational and strategic procurement service covering both transactional procurement in the form of managing the ‘procure to pay’ process; and strategic procurement covering an end to end process of establishing legally compliant contracts through best practice procurement.
Access to the Finance System will be provided by the Authority in order to perform the services required.
The Authority's intention is to award a contract for an initial period of 3 years with a possible extension or extensions of up to 2 years in total, each of which extension periods is exercisable at the Authority's discretion and is subject to compliance by the successful bidder with the terms of the contract. The estimated value of the contract will be 500 000 GBP per annum.
