The Council's Procurement Policy
The Council is committed to promoting economic development in Hart. This follows through to how we buy goods and services that are needed to carry out what we do. We ensure that anything we buy is done so transparently in a number of ways. All spend over £500 is published on this website, including the type of products purchased and the name of the supplier. We also hold a contracts register. In addition, purchases we make are governed by the Contract Standing Orders found within Hart's Constitution.
How we advertise contract opportunities
We work in partnership with Capita Procurement Services to help us get the best value for money when we are buying goods and services and securing service contracts. Any upcoming contract opportunities that we have will be advertised on Contracts Finder and available on Capita’s procurement portal. They are still currently accessible via South East Business Portal too (click "Contracts Finder" on the left hand side). If you are interested in selling to the council register on Capita's Partnership Portal - in addition you will be able to see a wide range of other contracts being advertised by other organisations who work with Capita.
