A Single Tendering Tool throughout the Whole Spend Analysis Process

Many SMEs may overlook crucial elements like expenditure award information and buyer/supplier information when it comes to spending data disclosed in compliance with the Transparency Agenda due to sorting through what is significant and what is not.

This is all summarised on your Defence Contracts International account’s expenditure analytics dashboard. Here, you can do searches and perform filters based on suppliers, buyers, industrial sectors, and geographies. You can also view graphs of various data points, such as the volume of transactions and the revenue for each project.

Develop Your Knowledge of the Past

The Government’s Transparency Agenda governs spending transparency in public sector procurement. 

With the help of Defence Contracts International’s procurement spend analysis tool, you can also determine which suppliers a local authority prefers based on previous contract awards and how those suppliers performed due to those awards.

Plan based on the most recent projections

In the United Kingdom, the public sector is expected to spend almost £1,083 billion in 2023.

These industries are ranked highest:

  1. 169.4 billion pounds in Pensions
  2. 213,5 billion pounds in Health Care
  3. 101.7 billion pounds in Education
  4. 57.7 billion pounds in Defence
Although a small part of these totals is spent on procurement, there are still plenty of supplier opportunities. You may utilize these numbers to generate useful knowledge that you can use to grow your market share by performing an effective procurement expenditure study. Additionally, you may determine the fields in which you can establish yourself by learning who your rivals’ successful bidders are.
