Supporting SMEs

ESPO welcomes tenders from small and medium sized enterprises. Did you know that in the financial year April 2018 - March 2019, 72% of suppliers awarded positions on ESPO frameworks were classified as an SME?  To find out more about the steps we take to encourage SMEs to bid for tenders, please read our article entitled Joining an ESPO framework isn’t as hard as you think.

"As a rapidly expanding SME, GreatBeanBags™ are delighted to have been awarded a tender by ESPO to manufacture and supply their range of educational soft furnishings. Tenders of this type are fantastic for growing businesses such as ourselves as they allow us to comfortably forecast mid-term sales, staffing requirements and manufacturing availability. We’re also very excited to be working with such a reputable organisation, meeting and exceeding their high standards and supplying our quality soft furnishings to such a wide range of institutions.”
