Powys County Council is a unitary authority serving a population of about 129,600, covering an area of 519,700 hectares, almost a quarter of Wales. It employs over 8000 staff and has its headquarters in Llandrindod Wells and Shire Offices in Welshpool and Brecon.
Clearly with an external spend of approximately £141m per year we have a responsibility to maximise our scarce resources in a way which achieves the Council’s objectives and best value for Powys citizens.
The Council’s Commissioning and Procurement Strategy will direct the effective and efficient use of these resources within a sound governance framework.
A copy of the Strategy can be downloaded below, and when considered and used in conjunction with the available additional written guidance and expertise, we can work together to ensure we take an active role in commissioning and procurement for the benefit of the population of Powys.
Should you have any questions, queries or comments, then please contact us.
Whether you call it procurement, commissioning, purchasing, contracting, tendering or buying, we spend approximately £141 million a year on obtaining a vast range of supplies, works and services from the external market.
