Approved Suppliers

We have a number of corporate contracts or frameworks, these arrangements have been put in place usually for goods or services that are used widely across the Council. They exist to enable us to purchase items efficiently and effectively and help ensure consistency of quality, certainty of supply and offer savings through economies of scale. You must utilise these arrangements if they meet your need.

  • All contact must be made through the Lead Officer. Under no circumstances must officers contact suppliers directly, with the exception of the direct placing of orders and progressing of orders on Office Supplies and IT Consumables.
  • Please contact the contract / framework lead officer for instructions on how to place an order.
  • Contract arrangements and pricing issues will be the responsibility of the Lead Officer.
  • Please ensure that you adhere to any department specific process, if necessary

If you are uncertain as to how to proceed, please contact the Corporate Procurement Unit (CPU) team.

This list contains details of the majority of corporate contracts in place but it is not exhaustive. Please contact CPU for details of other contracts which may satisfy your requirements.

Since July 2010 the Authority has enforced a moratorium on purchasing any new office furniture. If furniture is required, please contact Paul Gregory in the first instance to establish what there is held in store across the Authority that would suit your needs.

Stored items are to be used, rather than purchasing ad hoc furniture.

Any items that have to be purchased will need to be compatible for integration with the furniture that will be provided in the future in creating the agile working environment being provided by the agile working program.

The following items are not to be purchased as there are a number in stock or are not compatible with the agile work space ideal.

  • Pedestal units (Locker units will be provided as agile team rooms are established).
  • Book cases
  • Filing cabinets
  • Metal cupboards
  • Desk dividers or freestanding screens

Any spend on office furniture will be closely monitored.

For any further information on non-office furniture, please contact Julian Lewis in the Corporate Procurement Unit on 01267 246242


Replacement Chairs

The G64R Task Chair (The Standard Chair)


The Orangebox G64R Task Chair with handles has been selected as the standard VDU operator chair across the authority in its Corporate Buildings. It will be referred to as the Standard Chair.

These chairs have already been installed in the new Touch Down Rooms and the Standard Chair will be provided when other rooms are fitted out to support the agile working program across the authority.

Occupational Health have confirmed the Standard Chair meets the needs of an adjustable chair and exceeds what is generally provided across the estate now. The standard chair will meet the majority of people’s needs when properly adjusted for the individual.

Referrals will still be made in the current way to Occupational Health for those who need work place assessments.

These chairs are tested to BS EN 5459:2000 for strength and stability and come with a 5 year fair wear and tear guarantee.

The choice of colours to be selected are from the “Extreme” fabric range and can be either a black (Padang) seat with a black (Padang) or blue (Ocean) back.

Green will be retained for the Touchdown rooms.

Anyone requiring a new replacement chair is to purchase a Standard Chair from Ministry of Furniture.

The cost of one chair is £159.00
