Councils collaborate to cut the cost of office supplies

Posted on by Rob Powell

Eleven councils in the south of England are using their combined purchasing power to bring down the cost of office supplies.

Brighton & Hove City Council are leading the Sussex Stationery Consortium which is putting a three year stationery and office supplies contract out to tender.

The Consortium has already been in operation for about ten years but the group of councils, which spend about £1.2million per annum on office supplies, are now seeking to find a single supplier to extract even better value for money.

Brighton and Hove Council leader Mary Mears said: “Our council is proud to be leading on this contract. Buying as a consortium is much more efficient and saves taxpayers money.”

The other councils in the consortium are Adur, Arun, Brighton & Hove, Chichester, East Sussex, Eastbourne, Hastings, Lewes, Rother, Wealden and Worthing.
