Trading with the council

We spend more than £250million on works, supplies and services each year through contracts with private, voluntary and community organisations and other public bodies.

We want to make it as easy as possible for you to tender for council contracts, despite the complex rules and regulations governing public sector contract arrangements.

Social value in procurement

Under the Public Services (Social Value) Act 2012 we have to consider how our spending could also generate wider benefits to the community in terms of economic, social and environmental well-being - collectively known as ‘social value’. That means we have to consider:

(a) how what is proposed to be procured might improve the economic, social and environmental well-being of H&F

(b) how, in conducting the process of procurement, we might secure that improvement.

The act only applies to contracts for services, but we are currently considering including other types of contracts for concessions, works and supplies. Further information will be published here as policy is developed.
