Council procurement: legal framework

Part of: Selling to the council

When procuring, we must work within a strict framework of legislation and processes.

This includes:

  • Public Contract Regulations 2015 and associated case law
  • national legislation – such as the UK Local Government Acts 1999 and 2000
  • council Contract Standing Orders (CSOs), which are part of our constitution

Our standard terms and conditions

We may adopt more comprehensive types of contracts from time to time to support specific requirements. These will be attached to the opportunity when advertised.
