Chelmsford City Council

Procurement strategy

We spend around £40m annually with third parties to help us deliver our services.

This spend includes:

  • longer-term contractual spend
  • one-off capital purchases
  • day-to-day service spend

We must make sure that we source these goods, services and works in a way that is in line with current procurement regulation. We also have to achieve value for money, whilst still contributing to the aims of the Council as a whole.

Our procurement strategy underpins all sourcing processes, allowing them to directly contribute to the ambitions of Our Chelmsford, Our Plan.

We recognise that commissioning and procurement activities have a significant impact on Chelmsford’s economy, community and environment. 

The strategy also supports:

  • the actions we identified as a result of the Climate and Ecological Emergency, which
    we declared in 2019
  • the commitments of the Modern Slavery Charter which we signed in 2020
