Commercial Services and Selling to the Council

Cornwall Council spent £540m during the 2015/16 financial year on a diverse range of goods, works and services from over 6,000 external suppliers, purchasing everything from pencils to social care services to waste collection and disposal services.  The approach taken to this spending has a significant impact on the community and our own resources.

Commercial Services conduct all procurement and strategic contract management for Council contracts with a total value over £50k.
