We are celebrating here at Procurement Assist – its our birthday!  We caught up with our CEO, Keith Armstrong, to reflect on getting a year older!

“The last 12 months have been a huge success for Procurement Assist” says Keith.  “We have delivered some fantastic achievements for our Clients – making us the procurement route of choice when it comes to outsourcing procurement.”

“In times of a national pandemic, we have delivered £60m of procurement through 40 contracts for our Clients, saving them £1.05m in fees (assumes 2% of spend average fee) and delivered 15% like-for-like savings on contract price.”

Despite the challenges in recent times for us all, Keith explains how the business has gone from strength to strength: “We have increased our staff base by 40% in response to the significant increase in the number of Clients using our service – in fact we have seen an increase of more than 100%!  Our Clients provide much needed services across the NHS, in social housing and in local authorities, and view Procurement Assist has a key strategic procurement partner.  In addition, nearly all Clients are taking advantage of our service for numerous procurement projects, not just one or two on an adhoc basis – in fact, one Client has just commissioned their 11th project with us!”

“The current climate means we cannot stand still” says Keith.  “Now, more than ever, budgets are being stretched and cut right across the public sector.  With a backlog of work, now is a good time to come and see for yourself how our low cost procurement services can help your organisation achieve the budget savings you need to make.  With 18 years public sector procurement experience, our team is ready to support current and future Clients as we become a year older.”
