Yorkshire Purchasing Organisation, YPO
We are proud to be working with YPO, one of the largest public sector buying organisations in the UK, serving more than 30,000 customers and still 100% publicly owned today. YPO was established in 1974 by a group of 13 local authorities and serves a wide range of sectors including education, housing, central government, charities, local authorities, emergency services, and the NHS.
The organisation offers a variety of procurement frameworks, including office supplies, furniture, catering equipment and supplies, energy and utilities, ICT, and educational resources. By aggregating the purchasing power of its members, YPO negotiates contracts with suppliers to secure competitive prices, helping public sector organisations save time and money on procurement, whilst returning profits back into the heart of the public sector.
Benefits of Using Frameworks on YPO
Procurement frameworks provide many benefits to both buyers and suppliers in terms of cost savings, time management, continuous improvement and compliance. YPO offers the opportunity to streamline the procurement process; it works with its customers to find out their needs and requirements, to create frameworks that meet those needs with competitive pricing and fair terms and conditions, whilst maintaining quality standards and meeting all legal requirements, including Public Contracts Regulations.
