How to do Business with the Council

West Somerset Council spends approximately £2m each year on a wide range of goods and services. Businesses often contact the Council with a view to supplying products or carrying out work.

In many cases the Council is unable to respond positively, either because it cannot favour specific suppliers or because there is no current requirement for the purchase.

A guide 'How to do business with the Council' has been produced and the aim of this guide is to help potential suppliers understand the Council’s approach to purchasing, how this is organised and what our likely buying requirements are.

A copy of the guide can be found on this page under related documents.
