UK & EU Compliant contracts FREE Workshops throughout the day No need to source 3 quotes anymore! Services & Products for your school needs. Hear from the Newly appointed Education and Skills Director Dr Tim O’Neill TBC “The Birmingham City Council Procurement Team recently conducted a Free Health Check and the positive outcomes and results were outstanding!! Although we constantly run vigorous cost comparisons before we make any purchases in School we genuinely could not believe the further savings we could have made using the recommended suppliers sourced by The Procurement Team. We look forward to working collaboratively in the future, and my advice would be if you are not part of the scheme then you need to be as budgets become more and more stringent !!’’ - Andy Kelbie Business Manager, St Saviours CofE Primary - Jan 2018 “I have recently started my role and I have found the advice, support and guidance from the Procurement team, in particular Claire Lewis, invaluable. There is a genuine concern for our issues and things are acted on very quickly. There is a strong ethos of customer care across the staff that I have dealt with, which is very refreshing. I do believe that establishments should not be without this service level agreement, it is value for money.” -N.Kumari : Plantsbrook Learning Trust - Sept 2018 View Agenda and exhibitor information here
