Staffordshire County Council’s head of procurement Ian Simpson has been suspended.

The council said the move has nothing to do with past or current procurements or relationships with suppliers.

A Staffordshire County Council spokesman said: “This is an internal matter and an investigation is taking place. Suspension is a neutral act that protects the employee and any other parties during this process. The investigation we have commenced has nothing to do with past or current procurements or any of our procurement relationships with partners and suppliers.”
