Procurement and Contract Management
SSROC manages over 200 suppliers, across 47 categories of various goods and services. SSROC procurement focuses on the overall value for money including economic, social, environmental and financial benefits for our participating councils. Overall value for money is achieved through aggregating demand, synergies in the region and innovative projects. We work collaboratively with our member councils and stakeholders to ensure that we continue to meet their needs and address their priorities.
The procurement team’s work includes supporting other SSROC project teams with procurement- and contract-related matters.
SSROC with its member councils delivers procurement and contract management support to numerous strategic and complex regional projects in waste recovery, renewable energy, street lighting, planning and development, road construction, and maintenance to name a few. SSROC contracts deliver financial, environmental, economic and social benefits to all our councils and their communities.
