Procurement at Scarborough Borough Council is the responsibility of Procure North Yorkshire, a procurement partnership which aims to develop a strategic and collaborative public procurement programme between the following authorities:

  • Ryedale District Council
  • Scarborough Borough Council
  • Selby District Council

The councils jointly spend £53 million every year on supplies, services and works needed to deliver services to the public in all areas. How well we procure these requirements has a critical impact on our performance and ability to provide value for money.

The partnerships Joint Procurement Strategy sets out the over-arching framework which will help to ensure that together our procurement delivers excellent value and supports the attainment of the three councils’ priorities and visions.

Equality and diversity

We have produced some information to help potential contractors and suppliers understand how we are working towards the integration of Equality and Diversity with procurement.

Our guidance booklet  gives information and advice on how we will provide equality in the procurement of goods, works and services and what we expect from contractors and suppliers during the procurement process.
