Decision details

Annual Procurement Plan

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: For Determination

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: No


The Cabinet considered a report of the Executive Director (Finance and Resources) presenting the Annual Procurement Plan for 2024/25.




1. That the annual procurement plan for 2024/25, as set out in Appendix 1 to the submitted report, which contains those procurements with a value of £250,000 or above, be approved.


2. That it be noted that any capital projects/procurements will be added as required, having being approved as part of the capital programme (both Southend City Council and South Essex Homes).


Reasons for decision:


The approval of the Council’s annual procurement plan is required under part 4g of the Council’s constitution.


Other options:


To just publish an annual plan, but it is felt that the development of a pipeline plan will assist the Council and businesses in their resource and future planning.  The move to a 3-year plan (2024-2027) also aligns with the requirements once the UK Procurement Act commences in October 2024.
