“We were extremely impressed with the quality of tenders received and delighted with the calibre of suppliers that we now have locked into our four-year agreement. The breadth of public sector delivery experience across our supplier partners is impressive and we are excited to work with and support them.

“It was important to us that our supplier partners have demonstrable experience of delivering across all public sub sectors.
