Hull’s small businesses are being given a helping hand to bid for council-commissioned work opportunities in the city.

The move is part of an initiative aimed at ensuring that when the council buys goods and services it is done in the interests of the city and the people that live in it.

The strategy is designed to ensure that council procedure takes Hull’s environmental, social and economic interests into account when commissioning work and buying goods.

The council’s new commissioning process will seek to split bigger contracts into smaller ones, enabling small and medium-sized firms to tender for them.

It is also planning to run “meet the buyer” events aimed at informing smaller businesses about the tendering process.

The process has already helped building firm Galliford Try to secure a contract to build Hessle High School and Sixth Form College as well as other new school buildings in the Hull and East Yorkshire area.
