How we approach working with others
When it comes to buying goods and services from other businesses, we follow the policies set by the Regulator of Social Housing (RSH).
These make sure we prioritise value for money, stick to good practice and comply with legal requirements.
As an organisation focused on making a positive difference to society, we want to work with companies that share our values. So we’re asking companies to ensure that at least 20% of the value of their tender adds extra value to the community. All of this is key to offering the best service for our residents and communities.
We offer a variety of contracts:
For minor activities that have a lower value, we review several quotes to find the most cost-effective options, before making a final decision. This approach is outlined in our Procurement Policy and Procedures document.
Our supply chain compliance approach
We partner with Alcumus to provide the highest standard of compliance within our supply chain.
Alcumus helps us do this by providing total supply chain coverage, visibility, and insight into the compliance levels across our on-site contractors and off-site suppliers. This partnership supports us in raising standards within our own supply chain and our wider industry.
What this means for our suppliers
For our significant contracts, all suppliers will need to have their health and safety, and sustainability policies pre-qualified along with providing information on their business and professional standing, quality management, and risk management.
