The County Council's Procurement Strategy identifies the key policies to be followed in any procurement exercise and contains actions to achieve improvement, innovation and consistency in procurement practice across the County Council.
This Corporate Procurement Strategy sets the framework in which the County Council will work to ensure that procurement delivers value for money across all services and directly contributes to the achievement of our corporate priorities and the outcomes within the Hampshire Sustainable Community Strategy.
It is recognised that the procurement of goods, works and services has a major impact on many aspects of life in Hampshire, including the environment, social factors and local economic development, which is reflected in the procurement policy, practice and improvement targets.
This Strategy has been endorsed by the Corporate Management Team (CMT) and the Cabinet and is supported by a two-year improvement plan. Performance will be monitored against the improvement plan using the performance management framework Driving Success.
The County Council is also leading on the Construction work stream on behalf of Improvement and Efficiency South East (IESE) and continues to participate actively in collaborative procurement opportunities in all areas of procurement both nationally, regionally and locally.
This Procurement Strategy is an ambitious programme of improvement, which sets high standards for all County Councillors, managers and staff across the County Council.
