Procurement - LGSS

Procurement

Our team of experienced procurement specialists manages over 130 procurement projects, each with a value of at least £100,000 over the term of the contract.

We deliver the full procurement lifecycle, from market research and product specification to the legal process of going to tender, supporting a spectrum of customers including city, district and county councils, health and social care organisations, arm’s length management organisations and schools and academies.

Being extremely risk aware, we provide guidance to reduce the risk of legal challenge and offer procurement frameworks on a pay-as-you-go basis, with online access to over 250,000 suppliers worldwide.

Typically issuing over 60 Official Journal of the European Union notices each year, our annual procurement activity is valued at approximately £380m.

Benefits of using a procurement service

In the public sector, it is becoming harder for organisations to fund their own procurement team. Yet without these skills organisations must outsource their procurement for a large sum, or rely on unskilled staff to handle a process rife with legal trip hazards.

With dedicated teams for health, care and education; highways, transport and waste; building, property and maintenance; and commercial necessities, we have the practical experience to guide you through your procurement journey.

To support you on your first step, we use the Crown Commercial Services Standard Questionnaire to help you shape your specification and are on-hand throughout the procurement process should you need strategic advice.

When you are ready to go to market we have an online procurement system with access to over 250,000 suppliers, so we are confident we can help you find the right provider for your requirements.
