Procurement made simple with Pickerings
Phil Martin, one of our National Account Managers here at Pickerings, has a wealth of experience with procurement solutions for public sector organisations and here’s what he shared with us.
Schools and other public-sector organisations often find themselves embroiled with time consuming and costly competitive tender processes when trying to procure buildings, particularly when there is pressure to start the process quickly.
Pickerings has been selected as an approved supplier to the YPO frameworks that are designed for the public sector, by the public sector. The frameworks allow organisations who use Pickerings to benefit from rapid procurement without compromising on quality.
As part of the contract, public-sector organisations looking for accommodation solutions can legally avoid entering costly competitive tender processes and simply turn to Pickerings to fulfil all their requirements from classrooms to whole schools, from offices to healthcare solutions. This route can save months of valuable time and potentially hundreds of thousands of pounds.
Phil commented that
The YPO framework means that anyone spending public money can go to a trusted supplier like Pickerings with the reassurance that they have been pre-approved. I am delighted with how easy it is for an organisation looking for a building solution to access the YPO website and obtain product and price information.
