Authority to procure a Tail Spend Solution via Crown Commercial Services Framework Agreement

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.
