The council’s procedures seem to be long winded and complicated, do they really need to be like this?

As a local authority we are bound by a number of rules and regulations dictating the way we conduct procurement. The Council is bound by the following rules and regulations:

  • DCC internal code of business conduct which is designed to ensure that public money is spent in a transparent and responsible way
  • UK law which dictates how business should be carried out
  • The European Union Procurement Directives which aim to ensure that the procurement process remains fair, open, transparent and open to all regardless of geographical boundaries within the EU
