Procurement Strategy

Procurement is the process of obtaining supplies, services and construction works spanning the life cycle of the asset or service contract.

The term Procurement has a far broader meaning than that of purchasing, buying or commissioning. It is about securing services and products that best meet the needs of the users and the local community in its widest sense.

The council's procurement strategy provides a common framework within which all procurements by Ribble Valley Borough Council are to be managed.
