Reasons to do business with Medway Council

If you're interested in doing business with Medway Council you'll want to know about our excellent reputation for procurement:

National GO Award

In March 2014 our Category Management Team won the Highly Commended Award for 'Innovation or Initiative' in the Non Health Organisations category.

We won the award for our £12 million Homecare contract where we were able to save £1.9 million while still maintaining a high quality service. For more information visit the GO website or read our Homecare Case Study.

CIPS Awards

We were shortlisted in August 2014 for 2 CIPS Awards in the following categories:

  • Most Improved Procurement Operation 
  • Best Public Procurement Project

A CIPS Supply Management Award is the most prestigious recognition an organisation in the procurement profession can get and we are delighted to have been considered by CIPS for these awards.

CIPS Corporate Ethics

We have achieved CIPS Corporate Ethics status and been listed on the Ethical Register for taking proactive steps to safeguard against unethical conduct in procurement.

This means the officers in the Category Management Team who select and manage suppliers are trained in ethical sourcing and supplier management.

Pre-qualification questionnaire

We work hard to make it easier for suppliers to do business with Medway Council and as part of this, we have signed up to PAS91 for construction projects.

PAS91 is a pre-qualification questionnaire which has been developed to reduce the need for suppliers to complete a variety of questionnaires for different, and in some cases, the same clients.
