We spend around £18m per year on goods and services, providing companies of all sizes with a range of opportunities. Financial responsibility for procuring goods and services has been devolved to appropriate stakeholders within the Force, with the procurement department taking responsibility for Strategic Procurement.

Our vision is to obtain value for money by procuring goods, services and works that will help to achieve our priorities and meet the needs of officers and staff.

How do we buy?

Contracts issued by Dyfed-Powys Police can be found on the Bluelight Procurement Database.
