About the TPC (Tayside Procurement Consortium)

The TPC is the name given to the collaborative procurement team created by the three Tayside Councils to collaborate on procurement across Angus, Dundee City and Perth & Kinross Councils, in association with Tayside Contracts. This award winning initiative involves:

  • Collaborating: By working together to buy goods and services, we can deliver more efficient business processes and save time and money.
  • Cost Reduction: We look to remove duplication and to deliver smarter procurement.
  • Treating Suppliers Fairly: The TPC aims to foster good relations with suppliers of all sizes.


The TPC provides suppliers with a singular point of contact for any procurement question relating to the Tayside Councils and Tayside Contracts.


The short guide provided by following the hyperlink below is intended to provide a helpful overview for suppliers on how best to approach selling to the TPC.
