Procurement at SLDC
The Procurement Department at South Lakeland District Council
(SLDC) is here to assist Council Officers in purchasing goods,
works and services in a manner which is open, transparent and
allows potential suppliers to bid from a level playing field.
The value of the procurement determines the process to be followed,
Financial Thresholds. We hope
to continually work with both staff and suppliers alike as we
tailor our procurement process to achieve positive environmental
and socio-economic impacts.
Procurement have now set up a supplier database, to keep
suppliers informed of any opportunities that are relevant to their
business and any changes to the procurement process. If you would
like to add your business details to the database, please

- We have collated the results from our
Survey and will use these results to improve supplier
engagement and identify improvements we can make to provide a
better procurement process.
- A point highlighted in the results of the supplier survey
was that many suppliers would be interested in submitting
invoices electronically. This can be done by emailing your invoice
- The Procurement team have now introduced the new Sustainable
Procurement and Commissioning Strategy and Action Plan. This will
benefit both the community and local suppliers by providing value
for money and develop more effective procurement practices.
We aim to advertise all opportunities on the North West
e-tendering portal, The Chest. All
suppliers interested in doing business with the Council are

5-10 minutes. By registering on the portal suppliers will be made
aware of opportunities of interest, not just at SLDC but at
the majority of local authorities across the North West.
