A neutral vendor helps clients source goods and services. It acts as a single point of contact for clients with no affiliation or interest in any one supplier.
As a neutral vendor, Bloom does not deliver consultancy services itself but helps the buyer select the best subcontractor available based on the brief. We then manage and assure delivery to the client’s satisfaction.
You might think that Bloom’s approach is only available for North East-based organisations. But that’s not true! We work with over 500 public sector clients across the UK, meaning we’re now recognised as a nationally available solution.
A significant amount of our clients are based across the UK, outside the North East. We’re based in offices across the UK, with our Head Office in Gateshead.
This Framework Agreement is available for use by all UK Contracting Authorities. This includes, but is not limited to; Government Departments and their Agencies, Non-Departmental Public Bodies, Central Government, NHS Bodies, Local Authorities, Emergency Services, Educational Establishments and Registered Charities; who have a need to purchase specialist professional services.
The Association of Greater Manchester Authorities and the Southern Universities Purchasing Consortium are also specifically named in the framework agreement.
The North East Procurement Organisation (NEPO) will be happy to help you access this framework if you’re based outside of the North East.
Bloom and NEPO
Bloom achieved Cyber Essentials certification in May 2017. Cyber Essentials is a government-backed cyber security certification scheme that defines baseline cybersecurity. Having certification means we’ve been checked against five controls that the government believes, when implemented, can prevent around 80% of cyber-attacks.
