Procurement strategy and governance

The following documents are the foundations on which the Procurement team works:

Procurement Standing Orders

Our Standing Orders set out the rules by which we spend money on the supplies, services and works we need to deliver our services to the people of Surrey. This is an important document as it forms part of the Council's Constitution and has been produced as part of our approach to the way we buy things.

Read Part 5 of the Council's constitution.

Procurement Strategy

The strategy is at the heart of our ability to deliver good quality and value for money, goods and services to our residents. The strategy provides a high-level view of the procurement plan over the next three years. It is updated as our business priorities develop and change.

The strategy is available to download below.

Terms and conditions

All our orders are covered by our purchasing terms and conditions which are available online.

Ethical Procurement and Supplier Conduct

We have developed three complementary documents that formalise the standards of ethical behaviour we expect from our suppliers and the Council.
