Why use ESPO for ICT procurement?

ESPO ensures best value and compliance with EU and UK legislation. Our service is completely independent and auditable with all stages being fully documented.

We provide formal and compliant procurement of ICT products and services taking into account all the factors that are important to you during the process.

Some of our frameworks have been established collaboratively through partnerships with Pro5, Government Procurement Service (GPS), Government Departments and other bodies, giving the combined purchasing power to secure prices 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 IT 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 ICT product or service you require is not listed above, please contact us.
