Bristol City Council spends £400 million on goods and services every year.
Based on UK and EU law we are currently exploring how our decisions on what we buy and who we buy from, can include consideration of the social, economic and environmental benefit different organisations and approaches bring to the city.
For example, if your organisation trains local people, improves the environment or supports a strong local economy, these things can be part of the criteria we use to assess who to buy from.
We are always interested in finding out what it is like to do business with Bristol City Council and are open to feedback about how we can make it clear, simple and straightforward for local organisations of all shapes and sizes to become suppliers.
Your comments will feed into the Scrutiny Inquiry Day that’s taking place on the 20th April ‘Making our Money go Further – Social, Environmental and Economic Procurement.’
If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact Lucy Fleming, Scrutiny Co-ordinator at the following email address firstname.lastname@example.org
All responses will be completely anonymous, unless you specify otherwise.
