Corporate Procurement Service

The Corporate Procurement Unit (CPU) is the central procurement hub for Inverclyde Council and works with Council services and suppliers to develop contracts and procedures that deliver Best Value.

It is responsible for the purchasing of goods and services for all council services and developing procurement processes, procedures, strategies and policies in line with national best practice.

The CPU also works closely with other local authorities through Scotland Excel to develop joint purchasing contracts. When procuring, services should utilise national arrangements whenever possible.
