We're part of UK-wide Education procurement frameworks.

The UK government offer advice on procurement processes for Education. They want you to be able to plan and run an efficient procurement process to buy goods, works or services for your learning environment.

Procurement processes are in place to help academic organisations like yours to:

  • Get value for money
  • Academies and schools in a framework will benefit from volume discounts that may not be available to those who aren't in a purchasing consortium.

  • Follow EU procurement law
  • While a post-Brexit UK may change this, EU procurement law is still binding until the UK officially leaves the EU. Even then, it may be followed so that we can still trade more easily with EU members.
