This is the third iteration of the Devon District Procurement Strategy. The strategy sets out our vision and our priorities for the next four years to 2022 incorporating the latest government procurement legislation and initiatives. We aim to provide quality services that are responsive to the needs of our communities and deliver optimum value for money.
The strategy sets out how we aim to achieve this over the longer term and includes an action plan for the forthcoming year which will be regularly reviewed and a new action plan produced each year.
By taking a collaborative approach we can improve the quality of the goods, services and works which we purchase whilst still seeking to achieve value for money and make the savings necessary to support the austerity measures.
The Devon Districts who will be adopting this strategy are:
- Exeter City Council
- Mid Devon District Council
- North Devon District Council
- South Hams District Council
- Teignbridge District Council
- Torridge District Council
- West Devon Borough Council.
It is the intention of the majority of Districts that this will be the sole procurement strategy for their council.
