National Procurement Concordat

We have signed the National Procurement Concordat for small and medium size enterprises.

The National Procurement Concordat requires us to adopt an small medium enterprise-friendly strategy, and to encourage a mixed range of suppliers, in the aim of stimulating a varied and competitive marketplace.

The Concordat sets out the actions that local authorities should take in order to make their contracts more accessible to SMEs, and is directly aligned to our strategy of engaging with small/medium enterprises and regional suppliers.
