North Ayrshire Council (NAC) are progressing a community wealth building approach to ensure closer links between business support agencies, the local authority and the wider public sector procurement opportunities for local small to medium enterprises. This is a real opportunity for anchor organisations such as the local authority to buy goods, services and works from local enterprises which in turn creates jobs and increases local spend through doing business with North Ayrshire businesses and social enterprise.
Senscot are delighted to announce we have been selected onto the recent NAC Business Support Consultancy Framework – Lot 4 Procurement & Tender Support 2020 – 2022, under the P4P brand.
Senscot works to ensure that social enterprises in Scotland have the support they need to deliver positive outcomes in their communities and is the lead organisation for P4P.
P4P supports organisations to increase partnership working and collaboration; to access more of the public sector spend through bidding for and winning contracts. To date we have supported the sector to bring in around £5M through successful tendering.
