What are EMSCU's priorities when buying goods and services?

Share by emailShare by email

EMSCU has developed a number of procurement/commercial policies, procedures, guidance and templates that look to balance the need for ensuring compliance and value for money, against the importance of keeping our processes as lean and efficient as possible.

Given that our clients are public sector organisations, our policies and procedures recognise the need to consider what wider social, economic and environmental benefits can be gained through the procurement process and ultimate contract. Our policies and procedures also take proportionate account of the risks that are particularly pertinent to police forces, such as information security and business continuity.

EMSCU’s SME Policy recognises the value of Small & Medium Enterprises and therefore the need to ensure that our procurement processes are as SME-friendly as possible.
