Why use ESPO for professional services 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 professional 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), the Cabinet Office, Government Departments and other bodies, 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.
