Procurement Public Sector

We are proud to have worked with several clients in the procurement public sector, including blue light organisations, health care settings and housing, supporting them with transformation projects which have secured significant cost savings and delivered legacy improvements that impact both the organisation and the wider community.

At a time when the public sector has been required to do more with less, Barkers has risen to the challenge, in no small part due to our significant experience within this field, held by our highly skilled consultancy team. We work within the frameworks and regulations of public sector procurement yet are innovative in our approach, driven by the impact our work makes not just on the client, but for their service users and the broader community.

Why we excel within the Public Sector

We care about the public sector. Supporting organisations which make a real difference to people’s lives and the wider society resonates with our core values at Barkers, so we’re always thrilled to engage in public sector projects.

We leave a legacy. Our consultants ensure that the public sector procurement teams they work alongside are empowered to continue to deliver significant savings, thus ensuring greatest value for the organisation.

We have a high degree of integrity. Our clients trust us to work with defined budgets that must be used considerately and appropriately. We are well rehearsed in running regulatory processes and find regulation compliant solutions that deliver value.

Our team consists of Senior Managing Consultants who have worked within the public sector. They understand and are sensitive to the frameworks they need to operate within, yet are innovative in their approach and application.

Award-Winning Partnerships

National Social Value Awards 2021
BiTC Awards 2019
CIPS Supply Management Awards 2018

We’re delighted to have won several awards in partnership with some of our public sector clients. Most recently, in 2021, Seven Force Strategic Collaboration won Procurement Team of the Year at the Go Awards in recognition of the outstanding work the team delivered, in which Barkers was Seven Forces’ strategic procurement partner. The project brought together three procurement hubs into one structure creating a single procurement function for the East of England region, whilst also delivering a savings pipeline of £5.8m and £29.6m of social value on three new FM contracts.

In 2019 we were thrilled to have won a Business in the Community award for our work with the Bolton Family, a collaboration between local businesses, charities and public sector organisations in Bolton.


“We selected Barkers primarily for the depth of their procurement experience but also because their ethical approach and commitment to the creation of social value differentiates them from other consultancies. The Barkers team worked alongside our staff to enhance the team and accelerate our delivery of budget impacting savings and the creation of localised social value.”

David Levy, Head of Strategic Procurement, Seven Force Strategic Collaboration
