Effective procurement supports Northumbria Police in making Northumbria a better place to live, work and visit by reducing crime and fear of crime. Through delivering value for money solutions and effective savings in public expenditure, maximum funding can be directed into front line policing.

Expenditure on goods and services is a significant part of the force's overall budget. It is therefore important that procurement is both effective and efficient and best value solutions are obtained.

The force encourages all types of small businesses, including ethnic minotrity and small medium enterprises (SMEs), to compete for business whilst complying with the requirements of the EU regulations, internal policies and regulations and procurement best practice.
