Education institutions, emergency services, district and unitary councils, charities and voluntary organisations can purchase much of their services and supplies via local government authorities either through a catalogue or direct via an established local authority contract.
The time and work associated with tendering and awarding a contract can be considerable. By collaborating with other public sector organisations this process becomes more economical and the resulting increased volume of goods or services equate to better pricing and terms and conditions. This means that contracts let by individual CBC Members or by Kent Commercial Services (KCS) KCC Solutions detailed in KCS Catalogue offer the wider public sector a simple route to market at competitive prices.
Unlike some other public sector consortia CBC does not operate one central warehouse or have one catalogue. However, Hampshire CC, Hertfordshire CC and Kent Commercial Services do have catalogues which are comprehensive in coverage.
