In relation to the above, the OPCC and Staffordshire Police strive to provide outstanding service to both its internal and external customers and the concept of value for money is embedded throughout the organisations in line with this principle. Contract Standing Orders have been drawn up to ensure that value for money is achieved when procuring goods and services. Any single purchase greater than £5,000 would be subject to a competitive process as stated in the Contract Standing Orders. A significant proportion of spend between £500 and £5,000 would be against existing contracts eg stationery purchases.
Records of expenses claims for earlier years are held by the office and are available on request.
