2buy2 has used its expertise to save hundreds of charities and organisations since its inception in 2009. here are some examples of how we have helped:
Commencing as an initial Procurement Maturity Review, our collaboration with Age UK has evolved into the establishment of a comprehensive strategic and operational procurement function for the entire charity. Since March 2020, 2buy2 has been dedicated to delivering continuous, professional procurement support, guidance, and expertise through our seasoned charity procurement consultants.
Following an initial meeting at a charity event some years ago, the partnership between 2buy2 and Livability has blossomed into a collaborative effort on various projects. Overcoming challenges associated with a problematic experience involving a rogue energy broker, Livability now aims to focus on optimising energy procurement for cost savings while preemptively mitigating potential future expenses.
Since 2011, our dedicated efforts in advancing strategic sourcing for the Church of England have culminated in the creation of an innovative procurement solution, Parish Buying, tailored to address diverse indirect expenditures, notably in the realm of Power and Gas. By consolidating their collective energy expenditures, we have consistently achieved substantial cost savings for the organisation.
As the strategic procurement partner to the Catholic Church for their 2,100 schools across England and Wales, we have worked with ChurchMarketPlace at a national and regional (diocesan) level to develop a strategic sourcing and category management plan to deliver savings for schools both within the catholic faith and across the wider education sector. This included the development of a specific Public Sector Buying Organisation in partnership with them and some key multi-academy trusts.
We had the pleasure of working with the Diocese of Westminster Trust to secure and deliver their Internal Audit Services.
The Trust wanted to receive bids from a range of audit firms that had experience of the academy sector and so decided on using the CMP Education Buying DPS for Financial Advisory and External Audit Services, as it allows customers the flexibility of inviting suppliers to the bidding round following an assessment.
