19 Mar Government SME Agenda – Suppliers Required
Wired-Gov are currently recruiting a variety of SME’s that have an interest in dealing with enquiries relating to fast tracked, lower value Government & Public Sector contracts. These contracts are not advertised (because the value is below the EU threshold) and do not have to go through a tendering procedure.
In the current climate, the only UK marketplace with any certainty in the forthcoming months is that of HM Government/public sector.
UK Government and Public Sector spend in excess of £220Billion on goods and services every single year. It is the stated intent of Cabinet Office that by 2020, £1 of every £3 spent on Government contracts goes to SME’s. The past 5 years have seen Government make a priority of getting money through its supply chain into the hands of SMEs, by both setting targets and introducing new procurement mechanisms. Against this backdrop, the Wired-Gov Supplier Locator service has been developed specifically to embrace the SME Agenda and provide a platform for SME’s to communicate directly with buyers and decision makers across the entire Government & Public Sector community.
Since April 2000, Wired-Gov have been working with the Cabinet Office to deliver official Government news, information and announcements, directly to the desktops of the Government Secure Intranet (GSI) community and wider Public Sector via an immediate and personalised email alert service. 16 years on, we now officially distribute on behalf of over 150 stakeholder departments and agencies such as the Cabinet Office, Crown Commercial Service (CCS), NHS, Scottish Government, Welsh Assembly, Information Commissioners office, HM Treasury and Department of Communities and Local Government. Wired-Gov is currently being received on a 100% requested basis by over 400’000 desktops of Managers, Senior Managers, Heads of Depts, Heads of Purchasing and Chief Officers etc.. across the entire Government & Public Sector landscape – Local Government, Local Authorities, Central Government Depts & Agencies, NHS, Education, Blue Light, Executive Agencies, MOD, Non-Departmental Public Bodies (NDPBs), Public Corporations and Parliament etc… We also service the Charity, Media and Professional Sectors.
The Supplier Locator Service provides a platform where Government/Public Sector buyers can request quotes and/or enquire directly with Suppliers for lower value, less complex products and services. The platform also enables its suppliers to promote their capability to supply certain goods and services through its industry news and outbound communication channels.
