Our website is a central resource for both suppliers who want to do business with the councils that we support, and buyers across our councils looking for advice and access to documentation.

If you are a supplier that either provides or is interested in supplying to our councils, you can find information on tendering, links to our procurement portal, and a range of useful resources in Supplier resources.  You will also be able to submit information about your company with will assist STAR Procurement to support you to do business with our councils and partner organisations.

If you are an employee within one of our councils or partner organisations, please visit our Buyer resources and register for access. Here you will find guidance and template documents that will assist you to tender for supplies, services or works contracts, along with a wealth of information to support your interaction with STAR Procurement.  

STAR Procurement now serves four councils and two CCGs in Greater Manchester, after welcoming Tameside Council in 2018, NHS Trafford CCG in 2019, and NHS Tameside & Glossop CCG in 2020. We continue to grow and collaborate to achieve transformation through procurement and co-operation.

Covid-19 update

STAR remains open during this difficult time. We currently have the resources available to continue to be ‘business as usual’ with our Core Offer and Strategic Work Plans. All non-essential meetings will either take place over the phone or using conference call facilities, or if this is not possible, will be cancelled.
