Procurement services

Transforming Businesses


Reducing Cost, Mitigating Risk, Improving Efficiency


Housing associations currently face challenging financial circumstances. Smarter procurement is key to ensuring the financial future of the sector, as well as the wellbeing and security of its tenants.

That’s where PfH’s procurement services will help. 


Procurement Services Offer

Achieving Real Benefits


Quite simply, we do more for your organisation. Our approach helps buyers stimulate, drive and sustain value throughout your supply chain. Our people are specialist in their field who are focused on results, not just advising on required action.

It’s an approach that’s tailored to the needs of your business to deliver both short-term cost savings and long-term performance improvement.

Spend Analysis

Understanding spend is key to identifying opportunities for improvement- but not every business has this capability. Through structured analysis, your data will be cleansed and classified prior to a detailed analysis. From this we’ll provide you with a detailed spending report with insight and recommendations to improve your bottom line.

Procurement Health Checks

Our specialist understanding of best practice procurement comes from working with more than 900 social landlords for more than ten years. This expertise enables us to fully understand housing association challenges in key areas such as supplier management, purchasing processes and performance measurement.

We can independently review your entire organisation’s procurement activity including investigating your documentation processes and systems to highlight areas for improvement- something many landlords simply don’t have the expertise or capacity to carry out themselves.

Tender Support

Hundreds of housing associations already rely on PfH to support their procurement procedures. From stakeholder and resistant consultation to contract award, we’re hugely experiences at facilitation the entire tender process from beginning to end.

For many organisations, tender exercises can be very time-consuming and often quite overwhelming. Our approach is to effectively become an extension of your procurement department- instantly easing the pressure and freeing your staff to focus on core activities.

As with all of our services, the support we offer is flexible according to your needs. You can rely on us whether you require a light touch on specific elements or full involvement at every step of the process.
