Selling to the Council Guide

Our Selling to the Council Guide helps suppliers understand how to win business with us by:

  • Outlining the rules we must follow
  • Explaining where to find details of opportunities to supply and how to tender
  • Explaining what is expected of our suppliers

Working in a consortium

The Working in a Consortium guide helps organisations work successfully in partnership to provide public services.

The guide considers whether a consortium is the right way forward and the advantages and disadvantages of working in a consortium.  This guide is written for small charities and local third sector (voluntary and charity) groups.  We also consider it to be relevant to small and medium enterprise (SME) organisations.
