ESPO are top of the table in awarding contracts to SME's

Published on 26/09/2018

We are delighted to report that ESPO continues to lead the way in awarding contracts to SME’s! The Tussell SME index* shows that for Q1 2018, ESPO awarded contracts to more SME’s than any other buyer.
Extensive supplier engagement and simplified, clear tender documentation and processes have been successful in encouraging more small businesses to apply for a position on our frameworks.
This is also a result of our ongoing customer engagement and understanding of our customers’ objectives and policies. More SME’s on our frameworks makes it easier for our customers to satisfy their own SME agendas and therefore makes our frameworks the most attractive in this respect.
We are committed to continuing our support of SME’s and expect this record to continue for the foreseeable future.
