Service charges

County Supplies is a self-funding unit of Hampshire County Council. It does not operate for profit, but must recover the costs of its operations. By using the direct delivery/call-off arrangements the customer agrees to the County Council arranging framework contracts on its behalf and receiving an arrangement fee from the supplier of the goods, services and/or works as consideration. Please read our Business Terms for further details.
