About procurement and tendering


Procurement spend is circa £60m annually.

It recognises that the procurement of goods, works and services has a major impact on many aspects of the Authority’s corporate aims, including the savings agenda and economic development.

Effective procurement is fundamental to the Isle of Anglesey County Council and the delivery of value for money, community well-being and sustainability through procurement will only be achieved by the adoption and practice of the procurement vision and aims promoted by this Strategy.

Procurement decisions for the Authority will be made to deliver best ‘value for money’ outcomes for the Authority and will deliver results that ‘best serve’ the needs of the local community.


Tendering is the process used by the Council to invite suppliers to supply goods or services to the Council.

Isle of Anglesey County Council tenders for any goods, services or works which total over £30,000. The aim is to create an effective, fair and transparent competition between companies to ensure value for money for the Council and the taxpayer.

The most popular tendering procedures used by the Council are either:

  • the 'Open procedure’: When any supplier can tender for work without going through a pre-qualifying procedure. It is usually used where there are limited suppliers within the market or where the level of risk is low
  • the 'Restricted procedure’: Requires suppliers to complete a Pre-Qualification Questionnaire (PQQ) before they are allowed to tender for the Council's work. It is usually used in situations where there is high competition but also high risk
