Guide for contractors and suppliers
South Ribble Borough Council spends approximately £9m on annual revenue costs with the private sector and several more million pounds on capital schemes each year. The four-year capital programme from 2022-23 to 2025-26 totals £84.5m. These spending plans provide organisations of all sizes with a range of commercial opportunities.
A lack of information about opportunities and a lack of understanding of the Council's contracting procedures may be stopping some organisations from applying for Council contracts. This guide aims to help overcome these difficulties and explains how we carry out our procurement activities and how to apply for contracts.
There is of course a great deal of competition for South Ribble Borough Council work, and this guide cannot assure individual firms of success. However it should provide enough information to give you the opportunity to be considered for Council work.
