  • Participation: Representatives from the Department for Education (DfE), Government Procurement Service , YPO and ESPO. Both YPO and ESPO participate as individual entities and as representatives of the Pro5 Group of public sector buying organisations.
  • Scope: All spend by English schools, which is currently estimated to be £9.3bn per annum, of which £7.2bn is on commonly bought products and services. In carrying out relevant procurement activity (particularly the aggregation of demand to achieve more competitive pricing), each organisation must operate within its own constitutional guidelines. Specifically, the participants must therefore operate within the terms of reference of Departments of State, Executive Agencies of Government and Joint Committees of Local Authorities respectively.
