Cornwall Council - Responsible Procurement Guidance for Suppliers

This guide for potential suppliers has been published to give an understanding of Responsible Procurement at Cornwall Council, in line with our Responsible Procurement Policy. It gives information and advice on how we promote Responsible Procurement in the purchasing of goods, works and services and what we expect from potential suppliers during the procurement process. For Cornwall Council, responsible procurement means pioneering socially, environmentally and economically responsible procurement to deliver improved quality of life and better value for money for our people, our businesses and our County. Essentially, responsible procurement is good procurement.

EU GPP case study: Innovative and green bus shelters in Cornwall, United Kingdom

In early 2011, Cornwall Council began a project to improve the quality and sustainability of its transport infrastructure. An open procurement procedure was used for the design of sustainable bus shelters to be used across Cornwall and 10 organisations tendered for this opportunity. The use of a request for quotations (RFQ) was an innovative process for the council, who asked bidders to give method statements related to sustainability and low carbon design as part of this procedure. The 6 different bus shelter models designed by the successful bidder included the use of long life, engineered wood with PEFC, FSC and Cradle to Cradle Gold certification for the main structure. Surface coatings which allow the removal of graffiti with water rather than chemicals and the use of energy efficient LED lighting are amongst other green attributes. The manufacture of these shelters will soon be let as a 4-year framework contract.
