OIC seeks views on procurement policy
Orkney Islands Council (OIC) is looking to hear your views on its draft Sustainable Procurement Policy, which looks at how the Council buys goods and services in a way that benefits the local community.
According to OIC, the local authority spends tens of millions of pounds every year on a diverse range of goods and services from suppliers. When organisations buy goods and services in a way that benefits the economy, society and the environment, while achieving value for money, this is called sustainable procurement.
“The draft sustainable procurement policy sets out the aims of this council in ensuring that the way we buy goods and services represents value for public money at the same time as supporting and benefiting our local community,” explained Gillian Morrison, OIC’s executive director of corporate services.
The closing date for completed questionnaires is 17:00 on 16 November 2017.
