Requirements for council suppliers

The Public Contracts Regulation 2015 came into effect from 26 February 2015 and requires prompt payment and increased transparency regarding payment to prime contractors and in-turn their sub-contractors.
The prompt payment guidance (PDF, 13KB) is intended for suppliers of goods, works and services to the council to enable them to implement monitoring and performance reporting requirements resulting from the Public Contracts Regulation.
