Our approach

If Bexley is to guarantee the best value through its procurement processes, it needs to ensure it consistently maximises its spending power. This can only be done with a thorough understanding of how and where the money is spent. This understanding will help determine priorities going forward and identify where efficiencies can be made.

This is an ongoing process as the Council proactively looks at ways to drive efficiencies from existing contracts and explore opportunities for in-house services to be provided by external organisations 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 best value through our external spend whilst reflecting and promoting the wider aims of the Council's Corporate Plan.
