Surrey County Council saves more than £140 million through contract renegotiation

23 October 2015

Surrey County Council’s procurement team – working together with other departments – has saved taxpayers more than £8 million in the past six months through negotiation.

The savings, generated by renegotiating deals with building firms, transport companies and IT businesses, mean the council has saved more than £33 million in the past 18 months and over £140 million in the past five years.

Denise Le Gal, Surrey County Council’s cabinet member for business services, said: “We’re determined to continue delivering excellent value for money to taxpayers through striking better deals and continuing to find new ways of doing things better.

“This will include working with other organisations to transform services and seeking greater devolution of services for the benefit of Surrey’s residents while calling on the government to recognise the demand pressures we face.”
