Partners in procurement
UWE Bristol participates in the West of England Partners in Procurement.
West of England Partners in Procurement is a group of public bodies based in the West of England. The membership encompasses the four former Avon local authorities and representatives from a diverse range of public bodies including local universities and colleges, Avon and Somerset Police, the Environment Agency and the United Bristol Healthcare Trust.
Since 2007, the group has run annual events to encourage local businesses to supply to the public sector by showing them how to identify business opportunities and to teach them what is required from potential suppliers, particularly in the early stages of the tender process (pre-qualification).
