From 1st April 2013 Council Tax Benefit will be abolished and replaced by Local Council Tax Support (LCTS)
The Council, like many large public and private sector organisations, is keen to obtain the benefits of trading electronically with its suppliers.
The Government is driving Councils to adopt e-procurement to improve efficiency. Hartlepool Borough Councils E Procurement Strategy is available to download.
Hartlepool Borough Council is working to utilise new technology to ensure we secure the best services in a cost effective, and timely way.
The benefits of taking this approach are clear:
- The Council will improve the efficiency and effectiveness of procurement activity by standardising procedures and implementing e-Procurement systems.
- The delivery of customer services will be supported by the best available support services and goods, at the best prices.
- Businesses will find it easier to work with the Council, and will gain access to a broader market place.
- E-procurement helps suppliers just as much as buyers, as it removes the majority of the paper-based activities relating to processing an order and getting paid, releasing valuable time for sales and other activities.
