Supplying the Southwest is our e-Procurement portal. We use this when running a compliant competitive procedure. The portal provides an effective way for councils to engage and communicate with suppliers. It provides a single point of contact for buyers and suppliers and enables a wide range of suppliers to gain easy access to new business opportunities and contracts.
By making contract opportunity more transparent and easier to access, councils play an important role in supporting businesses which can find it difficult to access public sector opportunities. It also helps us to make our contracting opportunities accessible to small and medium sized businesses and social enterprises.
If you would like more information about the portal, or if you have identified a potential contracting opportunity that would benefit from a competitive process, email the Commercial and Procurement Team at: CommercialandProcurement@somerset.gov.uk
