Procurement at The Planning Inspectorate

We can provide potential suppliers with information about our procurement activity, processes and contacts if required. These documents help suppliers understand our procurement process.

We have a specialist procurement and contracts unit based at our Bristol headquarters. The unit is responsible for procuring a wide range of commodities and services.

The unit seeks to get best value for money. This means we buy the items that best match our needs, taking into account:

  • quality
  • service
  • delivery against price
  • maintenance, running and disposal costs

The unit is committed to making it as easy as possible for existing and potential suppliers to trade with the Inspectorate.
