The Queen’s Speech included a keynote update and intention from the Government on the introduction and launching of a new Public Procurement Bill which will replace the existing Public Contracts Regulations 2015 regime.
Education Buying has helped hundreds of schools save time and money through our buying and bespoke consultancy solutions. Read through our case studies and see how we have schools and MATs across the UK.
We were approached by a large multi-academy trust in the North West of England to identify opportunities for them to be more strategic about their procurement.
The benefits of strategic sourcing in education have helped realise huge cost savings. The necessity to acquire products and services more efficiently is a growing concern across the MAT. A major step in becoming more strategic is to conduct a spend analysis, which identifies key sourcing opportunities.
Recently, we started working with a school in the West Midlands to secure and deliver their new internet service.
The school and subsequently, the Trust they were a part of wanted new broadband installed throughout all eight schools ranging from primary to secondary that were part of the Trust. They had a specific set of requirements to meet as part of this new tender as well as multiple end dates that Education Buying would need to consolidate.
Over the last few months we started a working relationship with the Diocese of Westminster Academy Trust, helping them secure and deliver their Internal Audit Services.
The Trust wanted to receive bids from a range of audit firms that had experience of the academy sector and so decided on using the CMP Education Buying DPS for Financial Advisory and External Audit Services, as it allows customers the flexibility of inviting suppliers to the bidding round following an assessment.
We recently had the pleasure of working with Mater Christi Multi Academy Trust to secure and deliver their HR and Payroll service.
The Trust wanted to launch their MAT with a single HR and Payroll service for staff. Their new MAT was formed by six schools across three different LEAs, and an existing supplier base of four suppliers.
