Create a procurement project in 3 easy steps

Step 1: Tell us what you need

Starting your procurement project couldn’t be easier. Select your products and services from our specially designed categories, and give us an idea of your school's budget if you like. This is completed without suppliers knowing who you or your school are – no pressure or pesky sales calls! 

 

Step 2: Tell us when you need it

Whether you have an urgent job or are planning for later, we notify suppliers of your deadlines for quotes and for delivery so you can get what you need, when you need it. And no wasting time trawling through tomes of proper procurement practice – our one simple process follows extensive government advice on school procurement policy!

 

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

With options to include any files or specification documents you think might be useful, ask questions to be answered alongside your quotes, select criteria you'll later judge proposals against, and suggest any suppliers that you would particularly like to hear from, you’ll know you’re getting quotes tailor-made for your school and your budget. We’ll only connect you with accredited suppliers who have a proven track record of working with schools.
