How the council created the procurement strategy

We launched a draft procurement strategy on 26 July 2013.

Over 100 suppliers attended an event called Doing Business with Medway Council and gave us their feedback about the strategy. Those who could not attend were invited to complete a short questionnaire to express their views. This all led to the creation of the final strategy, about our commitment to improve the way we do our procurements and create opportunities for you to do business with the council.

Six months after the Procurement Strategy was officially released our Category Management Team held a follow up event, so we could report on our progress. The event included speeches from Cllr Alan Jarrett and Tudor Price from the Kent Invicta Chambers of Commerce as well as a presentation by Neville Gaunt from the Federation of Small Businesses.
