What is Procurement?

Procurement is the process of acquiring goods, services or works. The process spans the whole life cycle of whatever is being purchased:

  • From identification of needs and formation of a sourcing strategy
  • To options and supplier appraisals
  • Through to the end of the contract or the useful life of an asset

Purchasing is the process of how goods and services are ordered. Purchasing can usually be described as the transactional function of procurement for goods or services and works.

Our overall aim is to seek the best value for money on all goods, services and work bought by Clackmannanshire Council. We also want to continuously improve the procurement process, to ensure best value from contracts awarded and to minimise the amount of administration involved when we make purchases.

We work hard to ensure that all procurement is open, transparent and accountable by complying with all relevant Procurement legislation, the Council's own Contract Standing Orders and procurement best practice.
