Tenders and procurement

Last updated on: 09-Apr-2021

2. How to do business with us

We have to follow a competitive process when awarding our contracts.

We'll sometimes issue our own tenders but we may choose to use frameworks and contractual arrangements available through our membership of the Kent Buying Consortium and the Laser Energy Consortium.

These contracts have been competitively tendered and meet legal requirements. We also have access to a number of contracts including those arranged by the Central Buying Consortium and the Crown Commercial Services.

We encourage and develop business opportunities in the borough and our neighbouring areas.  However, we can't make any exclusive provisions for local businesses during the tendering processes as we have to ensure we meet our obligations to give equal opportunities to all bidders.

Our Purchase Order Terms and Conditions

We will always contract businesses under our own terms and conditions. These terms and conditions will apply to the exclusion of other terms and conditions.
