Contracts and tenders with the council
The South East Shared Services website:
- offers a quick quotes section to enable staff to run competitive quotes for smaller contracts
- provides greater transparency by improving the link between live tenders and our published contracts register
- streamlines the tendering process, particularly for small contracts
- improves engagement with SMEs for contract opportunities
- offers free notifications to suppliers when contract opportunities arise
This is a great step towards better collaboration and partnership working with our neighbouring councils.
