If Bexley is to guarantee the best value through its procurement processes, it must ensure it consistently maximises its spending power. It can only do this by thoroughly understanding how and where money is spent. This understanding will help determine priorities in the future and identify where we can make efficiencies.
It is an ongoing process as the Council proactively looks at ways to drive efficiencies from existing contracts and explore opportunities for external organisations to provide in-house services, where this represents better value for money.
Bexley's Procurement Strategy (PDF) sets out a clear framework for undertaking procurement exercises throughout the authority, ensuring the best value through our external spending whilst reflecting and promoting the wider aims of the Council's Corporate Plan.
