To consider a new Procurement Strategy for 2023-2026

2)    That the feedback from Policy Development Panel be noted

Reasons for the decision:

·       To ensure that the Council had a clear Procurement Strategy for the next 3 years;

·       To agree a single approach to procurement across the Partnership that maximised the savings opportunities for the Councils;

·       To ensure compliance with audit requirements as some of the Partner Councils have had audit recommendations to update their Procurement Strategies.

·       To help support key Council priorities, such as sourcing local suppliers, procuring sustainably and ethically.)

Alternative options considered:

·       To do nothing – this would result I the Council continuing to have no formal Procurement Strategy in place.
