All our supply chains contain entry criteria that is compliant with procurement regulations. Therefore, the information required, and the acceptance criteria is the same for all providers. This allows SMEs, charities, sole traders, and national groups to all join our supply chains on a regular basis. Approximately 100 new providers register to our platforms each month.
Tailor which notifications you receive:
Providers have complete control over the services they receive notifications for. This means that they only receive relevant alerts from our platforms. All approved providers instantly receive notifications when a new requirement is looking to be filled that matches services they can deliver. This provides a level playing field when it comes to understanding available opportunities.
Full transparency over contract award:
Services commissioned via our platforms have a clearly assigned award criteria, set by the Local Authority or CCG, which is shown to all providers. This gives transparency to all providers responding and provides greater control over business decisions. Depending on the supply chain, the award criteria may incorporate methods of measuring quality, which factor into decision making.
Contracts and payment management:
Electronic contracts act as an accurate record of the agreed services and in many cases allow for invoices to be raised electronically via our platforms too. Providers raising invoices via our platforms are paid reliably and on time, and can easily track the status of their invoices.
