Working with West Berkshire Council's Commissioning Team

Commissioning team

Our Commissioning team works to improve outcomes and value for money from the goods, works and services used throughout the council, including social care services, building works, highways repairs, IT software and catering.

We hold a variety of contracts either with single providers, through framework agreements involving multiple partners or in long-term partnership arrangements. We also host the Berkshire Community Equipment Store contract on behalf of six authorities and four Clinical Commissioning groups.
