Coronavirus : Procurement

Advice for suppliers

Coronavirus advice for our suppliers

We appreciate the ongoing commitment and support received from our contracted suppliers to maintain services and supplies to the Council and its customers during the coronavirus outbreak.  We know that this will be a very challenging time and that all need to work together in the coming weeks.

We also appreciate that some suppliers may struggle to fully meet their full contractual obligations, and that we may in consequence need to alter existing requirements, temporarily suspend some services, or change ways of working to do what is necessary for our community.

During this period we would like to work together with our at-risk suppliers to provide support, where it is possible, in order that we can resume normal contract service delivery as soon as this outbreak is over.

We have been working with the Government and are able to provide some supplier relief (support).
