Councillor Dan Levy, Executive Member for Finance, introduced and gave an overview of the report, which presented an updated draft Procurement and Contract Management Strategy for comment and consideration by Executive.

In debate, the Executive highlighted that procurement was from ethical sources and reputable suppliers. There would be more control over contracts and reviews of contracts, working with companies who were aware of ethnic issues such as modern slavery, foreign suppliers and making sure current policies were adhered to.

Councillor Dan Levy proposed that the Executive agree the recommendations as set in the report. This was seconded by Councillor Duncan Enright, was put to a vote, and unanimously agreed by the Executive.

The Executive Resolved to:

  1. Approve the update Procurement and Contract Management Strategy;
  2. Delegate authority to the Director of Governance to amend the approved Contract Procedure Rules to remove reference to the obsolete Procurement Strategy and Procurement Code, which the Procurement and Contract Management Strategy will replace.
