Maximising opportunities and buying locally
STAR Procurement is seeking to further engage with more local suppliers within its four boroughs (Stockport, Tameside, Trafford and Rochdale) and Greater Manchester through the development of a local supplier database through our website. This will allow STAR Procurement to directly notify suppliers of any procurement opportunities that may be of interest. In addition to this, we will also be providing suppliers with information regarding Social Value, webinars, and any other relevant news.
To do so, we have registered an opportunity on The Chest which will include a link to our supplier database for registration and linked this to category codes for Place, People and Professional to reach the widest network. If you are interested and are a local supplier, please search on the Chest for reference number DN427876 and complete the supplier details form on our website.
Nichola Cooke Assistant Director at STAR Procurement said, “As part of our Local Investment workstream we are keen to engage with and support our local businesses and SME’s. To help us do this, we need to understand which businesses are interested in working with us and what they can offer, or could offer in the future. The supplier database is just one part of our workstream, so watch this space for further developments!”
