The Contract Register is a record of the contracts we hold with a value of £5,000 or more, in line with the council's Contract Procedure Rules.
The Contract Register is updated on quarterly in arrears basis to reflect live contracts and includes information on their total values, what they are for and who the supplier is.
In line with the Local Government Transparency Code 2015 key details for Council Contracts above £5,000 will be provided.
Please note, some framework contracts have expired dates however, due to ongoing delivery of services under the framework, meaning these will remain on the published contract register until the services have ceased.
For example, in the event of an emergency, there may not be enough time to follow a full process. Otherwise our standard processes are as follows:
|Goods, Services and Works up to £1,000||Obtain best value for money|
|Goods, Services and Works from £1,000 to £5,000||Seek to obtain at least two (2) written Quotations unless exception is granted by line manager (at least one (1) from a Local provider).|
|Goods, Services and Works from £5,000 up to £25,000||Seek to obtain at least three (3) written Quotations (at least one (1) from a Local provider).|
Goods, Services and Works from £25,000 to £100,000
|Seek to obtain at least three (3) written Quotations (at least one (1) from a Local provider). Advertising on Contracts Finder is recommended|
|Goods, Services and Works from £100,000 up to Threshold||Seek to obtain at least three (3) written Quotations. The Procurement Team must be consulted. Advertising on Contracts Finder is mandatory|
|Goods, Services and Works above National Threshold||Procurement must be run in accordance with the Regulations*.|
