Why buy via the Welsh Procurement Alliance (WPA)?
Key benefits of buying through WPA:
All WPA framework arrangements are pre-tendered via OJEU to comply with the EU Procurement Directive and UK public sector procurement rules:
Specifications for all product areas are fully researched and developed before the framework tender process is undertaken. Our evaluation process ensures that only quality products, suppliers and contractors are selected to be on our frameworks. WPA work with you to ensure that programmes of work are delivered in line with your expectations and where there is any deviation from target performance, WPA will contact the Appointed Company directly to agree remedial action.
Value for Money
WPA is recognised by its users for delivering Value for Money through all of its frameworks. As a WPA Partner your organisation could also benefit from an end of year rebate in the form of a distribution of WPA surpluses.
All WPA appointed companies must have a sustainability policy in place that takes in to consideration environmental management plus social inclusion, equality and diversity. WPA actively encourage Welsh suppliers and contractors to bid to become WPA Appointed Companies to give our clients as many local options as we can. We can only appoint companies that apply of course, but we are passionate about encouraging the growth of the Welsh industries that we are connected to.
Calling-off from a framework streamlines the procurement process. Mobilise and be on site quickly. Reduce tendering costs.
Participation in the WPA enables partner organisations to initiate and shape the frameworks they need to meet their local community and organisational goals.
