How can SME suppliers get a look in to Public Sector Procurement?

Over recent years, various Government pledges have proposed – even mandated – that the public sector makes better procurement choices. Targets include choosing cloud solutions first and buying more products and services from small/medium businesses (SMEs).

These strategies have solid enough foundations – having been designed to introduce greater agility, speed of delivery and cost efficiency to purchasing. They are also intended to boost the British economy, by supporting entrepreneurs, smaller specialists and local suppliers – the sorts of businesses that drive innovation and underpin the country’s prosperity.

The good news is that in the two years since, the UK has started to bridge the gap of the digital divide – but more than 12 million still fall short. The message is clear, the UK economy will begin to suffer as a whole if businesses, educational institutions and Government agencies don’t all work harder to close this digital skills gap.
