Procurement and commissioning

Selling to the Council

Procurement describes the way the Council acquires all the goods, services and works it needs to provide services to the people of Coventry. This can be anything from buying pens and paper to financing major construction projects or commissioning social care services. How we do this can therefore vary according to value and complexity of contract arrangements.

How we buy

There are a range of procurement policies and procedures. These are designed to ensure transparency, value for money and support the council's wider social, economic and environmental aims

Advice for local businesses

Show you are interested by registering on the eTendering system: You will receive e-mail bulletins of any open tenders for your area of business and be visible to Council employees during their quote or tender selection process.

Prompt Payment

The Council has signed the Prompt Payment agreement for small businesses.

Fair Processing notice

The Council is under a duty to protect the public funds it administers, and will use supplier information for the prevention and detection of fraud. It will also share this information with other bodies responsible for auditing, administering public funds and will use it for comparison across the Council and with external organisations for the prevention and the detection of fraud.
