Improving Schools Procurement - Getting Better Value for Money through 'buy4wales'
Value Wales is part of the Welsh Government and helps the Welsh public sector get better value for money. This includes using the buying power of the entire Welsh public sector to set up better arrangements with suppliers. Details are available through the buy4wales website.
The service is free for schools to join and use. More information is also available at buy4wales for schools (external link)
The Value Wales arrangements available through the website help schools by:
- bringing purchasers across the public sector in Wales together to get better prices and achieve savings through collaborative procurement;
- straight forward, simple buying processes that cut out time consuming searching and tendering;
- providing quality assurance and managing suppliers so that the right product and service are supplied; and
- supporting sustainable development with Value Wales selected suppliers committed to sustainability without compromising cost.
Value Wales has agreements with suppliers for a wide range of goods and services such as IT equipment and services, stationary and paper, educational material, fixed and mobile call charges, media advertising, postal services, printing services and photocopiers.
In 2007 Value Wales set up a project to raise awareness amongst schools. ‘Improving Schools Procurement in Wales - Case Studies’ provides details of some of the schools in Wales who have benefited from using Value Wales frameworks.
