Support for contracted suppliers

We're working with STAR Procurement, our shared procurement service working with Rochdale, Tameside and Trafford councils, to help address any issues you may have.

We'll work with you to provide support, where possible, so that as soon as the coronavirus outbreak is over, normal contract service delivery can start.

Contact us:

  • if you're struggling to meet your contractual obligations in full
  • you think that we may need to alter our requirements
  • if you temporarily suspend some services or change your ways of working

If you need some flexibility or additional support download and complete the supplier support request form (PDF 215Kb).

Email it to and explain why you need to make this request. This will help us make a quick decision on the support you'll need in the interests of yourself, us and our community.

You can also visit the Greater Manchester Business Growth Hub website. This has a range of resources and guidance to help you respond to the outbreak.
