At PfH we offer full service procurement solutions that ensure you identify, realise and maintain savings and manage your costs effectively. PfH can help you establish total visibility of your costs, eliminate unmanaged and non-compliant spend, rationalise your supplychain and your management processes, and eliminate price creep.
Using the purchasing power of over 850 Members with nearly 4 million homes, PfH can deliver framework terms that are better than anywhere else. Using an EU compliant framework means you don’t have to conduct a time consuming and expensive tender process yourself. This can save you more than £10,000 before you even use the framework.
We engage with Members, practitioners and experts from outside the sector to ensure that we are at the forefront of leading edge procurement and are meeting your needs. We provide insight,white papers, vital news, and Member case studies to keep you up-to-date and we would be delighted to hear you views.
