STAR Procurement is the award winning shared procurement service for Rochdale, Stockport, Tameside and Trafford Councils. Their website is a central resource for both suppliers who want to do business with the councils that they support, and buyers across their councils looking for advice and access to documentation.
If you are a Greater Manchester social enterprise supplier that either provides or is interested in supplying to those councils, you can find information on tendering, links to their procurement portal, and a range of useful resources in the supplier resources section. You will also be able to submit information about your company which will assist STAR Procurement to support you to do business with their councils and partner organisations.
STAR Procurement are aiming to increase their public sector partner authorities’ spend with Greater Manchester businesses. If you would like to be notified of relevant tender opportunities and market engagement events, register here.
