Selling to the Council

The Council spends over £300 million every year on a wide range of goods, works and services to help us provide services to the people of Hackney.

It is our policy to ensure procurement is managed at the most appropriate level in the organisation, to ensure specifications are developed by the people closest to the service user and that contracts are only awarded to providers who have been sourced and selected through a sound and robust process in accordance with relevant legislation.
