The Director of Resources submitted a report seeking approval from committee for the new Procurement Strategy covering the period 2022/23 to 2024/25.


She informed committee that the current strategy had been produced many years ago and was outdated. The new strategy was a complete re-write and covered the same themes as the National Procurement Strategy for Local Government, namely Showing Leadership; Behaving Commercially and Achieving Community Benefits.


The strategy included a series of statements regarding the approach to procurement under the themes and how it related to other policies, along with a detailed action plan. This would be reviewed on an annual basis going forward.
