Why use ESPO for education procurement?
Education is a key market for ESPO. Our range has been specifically tailored to provide customers with a broad choice of products and services offering the highest quality and best value for money. We provide a one-stop-shop for all your educational requirements.
ESPO ensures best value and compliance with EU and UK legislation. Our service is completely independent and auditable with all stages being fully documented.
Some of our frameworks have been established collaboratively through partnerships with Pro5, giving the combined purchasing power to secure prices and terms that are much more competitive than would be possible for customers to achieve if purchasing on their own.
Whilst our frameworks cover the majority of education products and services, we know that customers may have more bespoke requirements that may not be fully covered. In such cases, ESPO will engage the market on your behalf to establish a specific contract to meet your needs or suggest alternatives that offer equivalent performance. If the education product or service you require is not listed above, please contact us.
