3 step process

Create a procurement project in 3 easy steps

Step 1: Tell us what you need

Starting your procurement project couldn’t be easier. Pick what you need from our school-focused categories, and give us an idea of your school's budget if you like. This whole process is anonymous; suppliers won't see who you or your school are, so no pressure or pesky sales calls

Step 2: Tell us when you need it

Urgent job? Or getting quotes for later? We notify suppliers of your deadlines for quotes and delivery so you can get what you need, when you need it. And we take the headache out of being compliant, since our one simple process follows government advice on buying for schools!

Step 3: Add as much (or little!) info as you like

Be as quick or detailed as you'd like. Upload any specification documents or files you think might be useful, and ask questions to be answered alongside your quotes. You can suggest suppliers you'd like to hear from, and pick criteria to later judge quotes against. Whatever you choose, you’ll know you’re getting quotes tailor-made for your school and your budget.
