Tail Spend Solution is a digital purchasing system which the Buyer and Supplier willuse. These are products that are often low volume and low value which we buy to meet a specific, short term need and are unlikely to buy again or in the near future. The tail spend solution will enable the council to capture this expenditure and re-brand as on contract spend that delivers social value based on local spend with local (Leeds) suppliers.
The Director of Resources gave authority to procure a Tail Spend Solution from 1st April 2023 to 31st March 2027 (subject to the successful trial of up to 6 months with CEL).
The estimated contract value is £500,000 per annum.
