Bloom, launched in 2012 is the UK’s leading marketplace for professional services. We provide an end-to-end solution for the procurement, contract management and payment of all professional services, via the compliant NEPRO³ framework open to the entire UK public sector. We are a fast-growing, innovative business providing a unique marketplace that opens new opportunities and drives better value for public sector buyers.
Having established ourselves as a trusted public sector partner, we offer one of the fastest routes to market, with contract awards in as little as 15 days, either via mini competition or direct award, of which there is no restriction on value or duration.

This is more important than ever given the current economic picture and the opportunities that lie with the Procurement Bill, which is now making its way through Parliament.Read the full Policy Briefing
