Procurement approaches that work
We have a very simple remit – to procure services for our customers at the best price, without compromising on quality. And whilst delivering this can sometimes be challenging, we do it very successfully, day in and day out.
Public sector and private sector – both need the best value and best quality, and it’s our job to achieve this, for you.
So, what do we do and why are we good at it?
We started out by procuring outsourced services for schools, desperate to save money and to stop being ripped off by unscrupulous suppliers. Over the past ten years we have saved schools millions of pounds, which they use to pay for teachers and learning resources as school budgets are squeezed. The Buying Club is now used by colleges, councils and central government, where public sector procurement compliance is fundamental.
Our people are qualified procurement specialists and customer relationship managers – chosen as much for their thinking and relationship qualities, as their technical expertise. They develop the buying strategy that suits each customer’s needs, which is usually targeted to achieving the same or better quality for less money. As an example, some of our procurement exercises have seen savings of over £400,000 for catering services – without compromising on food quality.
