Procurement - Adding value to the community
Procurement is the process of acquiring goods, works or services. Procurement is not just about buying goods or services, as buying is a part of the procurement process.
The procurement process spans the whole cycle from identifying the need, through to implementing a contract, contract management and finally disposing of an asset after its useful life has ceased.
The Corporate Procurement Unit is based in Sandbach, and is staffed by a team of 8 professionals. All team members have attained the CIPS (Chartered Institute Purchasing and Supply) qualification, and are therefore highly qualified to offer advice and guidance on all procurement issues.
