The Public Sector Market

Every year, the governments in Ireland and UK spend a combined £242 billion (€270 billion) on goods and services.

Even better news is that giving SMEs (including sole traders, small and micro businesses) more of this revenue is a key priority for the UK government – by 2020 they intend over a third of public sector spend by value to go to small businesses.

This objective includes direct tenders with SMEs as well as subcontracting spend.

Why should I do business with the public sector?

So, we know that the Irish and UK Governments are focused on giving more business to SMEs (including sole traders, micro and small businesses) but what are the other benefits of becoming a supplier to the public sector market?

  • A wide range of requirements – the public sector is constantly looking for help in all sorts of industries from construction to cleaning, information technology to health and safety
  • Potential for ongoing work – often steady, reliable business once contract is awarded
  • Responsibility to provide services irrespective of economic conditions
  • Strong references and interesting work – supplying to the public sector market can open doors to other potential customers
