This letter and application form encourages councils to nominate themselves for the ‘best councils to do business with’ award.
Many local authorities are already doing a lot to support small businesses in public procurement opportunities. We want these examples of excellent practice to gain the recognition they deserve, so that other councils can learn from them and that small suppliers can come forward with more confidence in bidding for local government business.
To nominate your council for this award, complete the form and return it by 5pm on Friday 22 February to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The competition winners will be invited to a reception at Number 10 Downing Street to share and celebrate their success. We are also keen to support the winners in showcasing their good practice, not only to other local authorities, but also to wider public and private sector contacts across the country.
