Our parent company, BiP Solutions, recently produced the second in their series of reports looking at challenges and opportunities in different areas of procurement – this time focusing on Local Government.

The report includes expert analysis, key trends and figures that will be of interest to SMEs, along with a guide on ‘Getting Ahead in Local Government Procurement’ even if you have little to no experience of tendering.

Although the report focuses on UK Local Government, there’s plenty in the 15-page report that will interest Irish SMEs – especially those looking to work with the UK of course!

Some of the key facts covered in the report are listed below.
