Membership & Services
As part of our cost effective membership we can assist with any type of procurement obtaining a number of quotations, SBM inductions, Finance, Project Management and Tender Facilitation.
Procurement – Quotations up to Tender Value – UNSUPERVISED VISITS
We will organise suppliers to come to school and meet with you to quote. This will be unsupervised by us.
Procurement – Quotations up to Tender Value – SUPERVISED VISITS
We will organise suppliers to come to school and meet with you to quote. This will be supervised by us to save you time and disruption to your day.
Project Management of Works Taking Place in School
Full project management of any works taking place that we have organised the quotes for. H & S details, DBS and Insurances are checked prior to works starting. Site visits when the works are taking place. Follow up when work completed and any issues prior to sign off.
All our suppliers have either come highly recommended or from us working with them in the past. When we on-board a supplier we obtain references and ask them to fill out our questionnaire detailing their finances etc so we can do the relevant credit checks.
SBM Staff Induction / Support
Induction to all new SBM’s or those looking to refresh their skills.
Full Access to Dashboard & Dropbox Facility
Our dashboard provides the latest information on all your quotes, contracts register and all procurement in one place. This facility enables to demonstrate to governors and Ofsted how you are applying best practice and saving money at any opportunity.
The toolbox allows us to upload all of your contract data so that you have a single repository holding all of your contract info. Toolbox then alerts you in advance of the contract needing to be renewed so that you have time to plan your new procurements. If you belong to a MAT, or cluster of schools, Toolbox provides you with a dashboard that enables you to access all schools’ contracts within the group as well as to chat with all registered users within the cluster to share ideas and best practice.
We can run tenders and write them up to OJEU Value (Currently £175k).
