Procurement

NHS Wolverhampton Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) procures services from a range of providers. Contracts vary from small one-off purchases to large works or service contracts.

When procuring services we ensure fair opportunity, competition and value for money.

The form of procurement we use varies depending on the nature of the product or service being procured but can include Any Qualified Provider competitive and non-competitive tendering.

We follow public procurement regulations and guidelines when determining the form of procurement and our approach.

The regulations mean we cannot favour providers simply because they are already in contract with us, an NHS organisation, located in our area, or employing local people.

We operate our procurements in a fair and transparent way in accordance with the Principles and Rules of Co-operation and Competition published by the Department of Health.

In line with the requirements set out in the Statutory Guidance for CCGs on managing conflicts of interest in CCGs published in July 2016 by NHS England, we maintain a register of procurement decisions taken, which includes:

  • the details of the decision
  • who was involved in making the decision
  • a summary of how any conflicts of interest in relation to the decision have been managed

This enables the CCG to demonstrate that it is acting fairly and transparently and in the best interest of patients across Wolverhampton.
