Manor Royal supports prompt payment awards
The Federation of Small Businesess (FSB) West Sussex Policy Team has launch a new pilot intiative in support of national FSB activity designed to promote and support the development of good practice in procurement and prompt payment in West Sussex with the intention of rolling it out further.
Good practice in this area is key to developing economic prosperity across the County through encouraging the growth of small businesses.
Guidance on good practice to businesses and local authorities on the use of and prompt payment to small businesses has been issued.
Small businesses will be asked to feed in their experiences, hopefully good, of those organisations who have made these commitments and these will be taken into account when making Small Business Friendly Procurement Awards at a conference in mid 2014.
