Do you want to sell to the public sector?

With over 80 years’ of combined experience in public sector procurement from both the buyers’ and the suppliers’ side, we know how the process works, what public sector organisations value and the requirements and standards they have to meet.

We know just how daunting the process can seem for both sides and understand that it can feel even more intimidating for smaller businesses with no in-house tender experience. That’s where we come in.

The first step is to discover the right framework for you. Find out more here.

Are you a public sector body looking for procurement support?

As experienced buyers, we have used the G-Cloud framework to buy services on behalf of public sector authorities since August 2012. This has given us a thorough understanding of the G-Cloud procurement process, the supplier landscape, and the challenges that you may face when using the framework and switching to cloud-based services.

We provide organisations across the public sector with either support for specific parts of the process, or an end-to-end service. Alongside G-Cloud related services, we also provide other public sector procurement consultancy. To find out more visit our Buy for government page.

Above all…

We pride ourselves on our 100% success rate on all frameworks and we are a truly friendly, approachable and diligent team!

We believe in…

Excellent service & knowledge sharing.
Kindness and respect.
Freedom of speech.
Power of being positive.
Taking responsibility for our growth.
Having fun.
