Tenders and contracts
Staffordshire Moorlands District Council and High Peak Borough Council formed and entered into a Strategic Alliance in February 2008. Both Authorities are maximising opportunities through joint procurement exercises and remain committed to keeping council tax rises low.
Procurement opportunities across both Authorities are advertised as either a tender (value above £25,000) or a quote (value below £25,000). Above EU thresholds for Supplies/Services/Works are advertised in accordance with EU regulations in The Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU).
Guidance and Information on how to submit a bid or Expression of Interest for a Contract Opportunity is provided in the procurement documents for each exercise.
You are recommended to check the website before returning a quote or tender in case there have been changes or updates issued
