At Bloom our open approach to procurement is unique. We’re free to think differently to solve challenges, offering control, choice, value and compliance

Requirement development

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.

Supplier identification & onboarding

Selecting from our dynamic supplier marketplace encompassing large corporates, SMEs and Third Sector, we will identify & support shortlisting of the most appropriate services suppliers, rapidly identifying & onboarding new suppliers where needed. Feedback is provided on all tenders to ensure learnings are shared across public sector suppliers to improve future outcomes.

Managed sourcing process

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.

Contract award & Statement of Works

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.

Commercial management

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.

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.
