Doing business with us
At Nottinghamshire County Council we spend approximately £620 million each year with external providers and therefore the need for great procurement supported by commissioning has never been greater.
We consider ourselves to be transparent and fair when conducting business with suppliers and contractors. We aim to give all interested parties an opportunity to tender on equal terms and aim to encourage a diverse range of companies to do business with us.
These are the types of contractors and suppliers that we do business with:
- international and UK companies
- SMEs (small and medium enterprises) - businesses employing 250 people or less
- social enterprises
- voluntary and community organisations
- we work with a number of local businesses to set up employment opportunities for people with disabilities [PDF]
We've put together some useful information for contractors and suppliers to explain our procurement process.
