We support collaboration across the entire end–to–end procurement process from opportunity identification, through sourcing and contracts, to supplier management and operations including supply chain management. A focus of that support is providing the specialist knowledge, project management support, and processes for our members to drive fast compliant and aggregated collaborative procurement.
Over and above the support we provide in the South East, we support bespoke projects nationally, and have formal partnerships with other NHS hubs and other national and regional procurement organisations to maximise purchasing leverage and value outcomes for our members.
We work with our members to understand their needs and create collaborative, quick and compliant routes to market that will deliver improvements. These frameworks and others available nationally are the base from which to launch collaborative further competitions, direct awards and commitment contracts, enabling the realisation of maximum value for members.
