Swalecliffe, Hoath & Chislet Primary Schools
Procurement of a new catering contract
The three primary schools, belonging to Kent Local Authority, came together to procure their catering service. The schools were looking for a range of good quality, nutritious, attractively presented meals for pupils and staff that complied with the government’s minimum nutritional and food based standards for the educational sector – complying with the new Ofsted guidance for catering.
Schools’ Buying Club were able to attract nine suppliers to the request for tender and after a rigorous and thorough evaluation process, we assisted Swalecliffe, Hoath and Chilset Primary schools in appointing Chartwells as their supplier. Schools’ Buying Club were able to secure a guaranteed income of £68K over the three year contract to the schools.
