Procurement in Kilkenny County Council
The Corporate Procurement Plan adopted in 2009 identified that procurement was regarded as an ancillary function undertaken by individuals within the Council in order to comply with the basic requirements of the EU Public Procurement Directives and National Guidelines. The establishment of the Council's Procurement Unit in 2010 has modernised the procurement function within the Council and has brought it centre stage to ensure compliance, support for service delivery, minimization of risks and the provision of good value for money on an ongoing basis. In addition, the Council's procurement activity facilitates economic, social and environmental objectives wherever possible by identifying opportunities for social or green procurement and by improving SME business activity locally through the Local Enterprise Office.
