Why Find it in Birmingham is good for business

By on 09/11/2016 in Blog, Cllr Mahmood, News, Partnerships

Find it in Birmingham (FiiB) is the city council’s procurement portal where we buy the goods and services the council needs to go about its business and we do our best to make sure we keep the Birmingham pound local.

All evidence suggests that buying from local small businesses will help the local economy, which is not surprising given that local small companies are more likely to employ people locally and spend their earnings locally.

Here Councillor Majid Mahmood, cabinet member for value for money and efficiency, talks about how the city council’s procurement portal is helping boost business and jobs in the city, alongside beneficiary Lightpower, who won a contract with Centro.
