Supplying to us

Like most large organisations Orbit has developed and relies upon strong relationships with various partner organisations. Our Procurement Team works tirelessly to ensure we get the best possible service for the best possible price.

So far as we are concerned effective procurement is: the acquisition of works, services and goods, which meet our residents',  service users' and the organisation’s needs, ensuring value for money throughout the life of the product (including disposal) and wherever possible delivering additional social value as a matter of course.

At the same time we understand the value of good relationships with ethical suppliers who deliver excellent service at an acceptable price.  We want to work with the best.

It is about the purchase of all goods, services and works needed to enable Orbit to deliver services to our residents.  This can be anything from pens and paper to major construction projects, therefore how we procure these services this can vary.
