Bloom offers a dynamic supply chain providing the public sector with a marketplace to buy and manage services. We ensure delivery of quality outcomes from our pre-approved and ever growing network of suppliers and consultants. Our fully compliant open access marketplace is outcomes based, meaning the public sector only pays for what is delivered.
We provide an OJEU compliant managed procurement service covering specification development, supplier identification & onboarding, full contract management, and lessons learned upon successful delivery of outcomes.
With our ability to source any supplier based on their capability to deliver your requirements, we are ideally positioned to help you deliver in these challenging times. We can act as an extension of your procurement team, ensuring you can access the suppliers you need quickly and compliantly, via a fully auditable process that aligns with your governance requirements.
Many Councils and Combined Authorities are already working with Bloom. Our managed service gives them full control and visibility of each project, a high level of risk management through an outcome-driven approach, and exceptional value, with average savings of between 11 and 19% on project completion.
Working with central NHS services such as NHS Property Services, NHS Digital and NHS Business Services Authority means we truly understand the challenges facing the NHS and the need for greater transparency around spend and return on investment. We are proud to deliver outcomes on behalf of the NHS, allowing funds to be better utilised on improved patient care.
We have a number of NPPV cleared procurement professionals who can help you effectively manage your project. With years of experience delivering outcomes across many blue light organisations, we have a bank of knowledge and specifications to assist your engagement with suppliers and quickly get you to the delivery phase of your brief.
The landscape of procurement across higher education has evolved over the years, becoming less about driving student numbers, to really adding value to their student experience, their welfare and giving them value for money. Higher education is a decentralised environment with a stakeholder base comprised of academics and researchers. With procurement teams costing on average just 0.4% of the total impactable spend of a university, investment in effective procurement is demonstrably money well spent.
Having worked with some of the largest Housing Associations in the UK, Bloom understands these pressures. We allow overstretched Procurement teams to focus on strategic issues, adding more benefit to their Association as a result. We have helped these Customers to procure Professional Services across all categories such as ICT, Construction and Fire Safety Inspections.
All Schools and Academies are subject to public standards of accountability. Though most of their budget is spent on people, there is significant spend in other areas including energy, estates management, professional services and facilities management. Effective procurement practices can release valuable savings that can then be re-invested in strategic priorities to improve educational outcomes and standards and improve life chances for all children.
