Doing Business with Nottingham City Council

Procurement has a central role in using Nottingham City Council's purchasing power to drive efficiencies and to deliver more with less money. Nottingham City Council has a responsibility to spend public money to achieve the best possible value and outcomes for its citizens whilst maximising the wider social, economic and environmental aims. The key challenge is how to continue to make improvements in this era of austerity.

The Procurement function will use Nottingham City Council's spending power to drive Nottingham's aspirations. This will be achieved through:

  • Being citizen focused
  • Maximising savings
  • Delivering economic, social and environmental benefits

Our approach to delivering these outcomes and the Council's strategic priorities is outlined in the Nottingham City Council Procurement Strategy 2014 to 17.
