Are you planning on running a tender over the next 18 months? Schools’ Buying Club is a multi-award-winning end-to-end procurement service and we have gathered some useful deadlines to get you started.
Easter Deployment: For all contracts commencing April 2020, your requirements need to be defined and documented in the next two months.
September 2020 Deployment: To get the best deal possible, we recommend kicking off your Procurement requisition process as early as December 2019/January 2020 for implementation in September 2020. In our experience, those schools who prepare earlier for a September roll out often receive the best value solution.
September 2020 Deployment Part II: 31st March 2020 is the deadline for requirements to be in so that your contract can commence at the start of the next new school year. Whilst that date may seem a long way off now, the months will fly by and, before you know it, time will be running out!
If you have any questions at all we would be happy to help! Contact us for more information or if you would like help developing a bespoke plan for your school, academy or trust.
