Details of the procurement information we publish
We are required by the Local Government Transparency Code 2015 to publish details of:
The Council issues invitations to tender (through its e-tender portal) for opportunities where the contract value exceeds £10,000. This limit is decided by councillors and is shown in the council’s contract standing orders.
We advertise any contract opportunities to do business with the Council through the Supplying the South West website.
We are also required by the Transparency Code to publish details of:
Opportunities that have been awarded by the Council since 2013, using the e-tendering system can be viewed in the e-tender portal by searching in the ‘contract register’ section.
Or, and for opportunities that have been awarded before 2013, you can view the ‘contract register’ on our Do business with the Council page.
We are working towards publishing over £5,000 and will publish over £10,000 in the first phase.
The authority will also advertise opportunities to tender for contracts above £25,000 on Contracts Finder, which is a website that lets you search for opportunities with the government and its agencies, and local authorities such as Somerset County Council.
When Somerset County Council awards contracts, and those contracts are worth £25,000 or more, an award notice is also published on Contracts Finder, so you can see who has been awarded the contract.
The Council’s financial systems are not set up to provide reporting on non-recoverable VAT at a transactional level. If you have any questions related to this please contact Stephen Morton, Strategic Manager – Finance Technical on firstname.lastname@example.org
