Doing business with Councils in Cheshire and Warrington

Cheshire West Council

The Council spends approximately £260m a year on a range of goods, works and services from third party suppliers. Obtaining best value is an essential requirement and one that cannot be achieved without the support of all our suppliers.

For more information see the Selling goods, works and services to the Council section on the Cheshire West site.

Cheshire East Council

Cheshire East Council has a devolved procurement structure and as such the sourcing, tendering and purchasing, of goods and services are decentralised. Cheshire East does not operate an approved supplier list; however some services do operate select lists.
