At Bloom our open approach to procurement is unique. We’re free to think differently to solve challenges, offering control, choice, value and compliance
Our team of procurement specialists will work with you to develop a fully compliant, outcomes-based specification for your project or programme, providing standardised documentation and sharing learnings and best practice based on the more than 7000 projects we have delivered to date.
Selecting from our dynamic supplier marketplace encompassing large corporates, SMEs and Third Sector, we will draw on our internal knowledge and data to propose a shortlist of appropriate service suppliers, identifying and onboarding new suppliers where needed.
We will deliver a managed sourcing process through direct award or mini-competition, including creating and publishing the invitation to tender (ITT), managing clarifying questions pre-tender and issuing bids on receipt for evaluation.
Working alongside you and your appointed supplier, we will develop a detailed, robust and fully compliant Statement of Works that is based on outcomes and value.
Our team of Commercial Managers will work with you and your appointed supplier to ensure all SDPs (Supplier Delivery Plans) are submitted and approved in line with the completion of agreed milestones, meaning you only ever pay for what has been delivered. We will also provide regular reporting on the status and progress of your projects against planned deliverables.
Cardiff Council required a solution to manage an unprecedented demand in children’s social care cases. Employing an outcomes-based approach Bloom, via NEPRO, provided the Council a managed service and access to an extensive pre-accredited supply chain that could provide the relevant services at less cost.
We understand our responsibility as we grow to build an ethical, unique and inspiring business. We align ourselves with the core issues and values that matter most to our stakeholders, ensuring that what we do fulfills the needs of current generations without compromising those of the future.

It remains an integral part of who we are, reaffirming our mission to make it easier for our public sector customers to deliver on their social value goals and objectives through our marketplace. Today, we are proud to call Bloom Essential the home of sustainability and social value at Bloom.
