Buying Solutions

Jewson has had a framework agreement with Buying Solutions (previously OGCbuying.solutions) for over 25 years.

Having to start from scratch with the competitive tendering process can take several months if full compliance with the OJEU is required. Buying Solutions estimate that customers can save an average of 77 days - and all the associated pre-purchase costs - by placing a contract against a pre-completed framework agreement.

By choosing a pre-accredited supplier such as Jewson, customers can avoid this long and costly tendering process, drawing on the framework agreement on a call-off basis. Our products and services have been rigorously assessed and independently reviewed to ensure that we consistently provide excellent quality and value for money. We are frequently benchmarked against other external offers to ensure customers consistently receive the most competitive deals.

Jewson has worked with a number of customers through the framework including Golden Gates Housing, City of York Council, Corby Borough Council, Riverside Housing Association and Adactus Housing.

By working closely with customers throughout the public sector, Buying Solutions has delivered savings amounting to £732m in the year to March 09, based on £5.35 billion of procurement expenditure.
