Procurement

The procurement department is responsible for the procurement and supply of goods and services for the Cheshire Fire and Rescue, including all fire stations and community safety centres throughout Cheshire.

The role of Procurement is to obtain best value for money, this means choosing the bid that offers the optimum combination of whole life costs and benefits to meet the customer's requirement. This is not necessarily the lowest initial price option and requires assessing the ongoing revenue/resource costs as well as the initial capital investment.
