What is a Carbon Reduction Plan, and do I need one?

Suppliers bidding for major government contracts may have to demonstrate their commitment to achieving ‘Net Zero’ by including a Carbon Reduction Plan within their bids.

How does the National Procurement Policy Statement (NPPS) affect suppliers?

A greater focus is being put on how public spending can better support economic growth, Covid-19 recovery and net zero carbon emissions. We recommend suppliers familiarise themselves with these priorities to support future bids.

The Sourcing and Consultancy Playbooks

The UK Government has published guidance for how contracting authorities should manage relationships with suppliers. We recommend suppliers familiarise themselves with the guidance referenced, and use it to support future bids.

December Round-up and Observations from 2020

The events of 2020 had an impact on public procurement. We saw a dip in opportunities with the first lockdown, but as the year drew to a close, we saw a significant number of new opportunities being created.

How do I find government contracts?

Did you know the UK Government spends over £290 billion on procurement each year?
In this post we look at how to find the contracts the government advertise to source goods, works, and services.

Improved public sector opportunities for SMEs

Public sector buyers are being encouraged to reserve low value tenders for Small and Medium sized Enterprises (SMEs) – making more opportunities available to them, and increasing their chances of securing work with the public sector.
