Back in July 2016, we were delighted to be awarded on the Eastern Shires Purchasing Organisation (ESPO) framework. As one of the UK’s largest public sector professional buying organisations, being on the ESPO framework has allowed those who needed to go through a framework to purchase the full range of our services.

Over the last couple of years, we’ve had the opportunity to work with a wide range of organisations, on some really exciting campaigns, as a result of being on the ESPO framework. These campaigns have involved any combination of the range of products and services we offer, put together to match each individual situation.

However, we have been hearing from some people that there is a certain amount of uncertainty regarding which of our services can be purchased through ESPO and how you go about doing it.

We understand how important proper procurement is to so many working in the public and therefore wanted to make it as easy and straightforward for you to purchase our services in the right way.

JGP currently sit on Framework 3A, Lot 4 ‘eRecruitment & Related Systems’. Whilst this might imply that this limits us to recruitment technology, this isn’t the case. Practically any of JGP’s resourcing advertising, marketing or software services can be purchased through this framework.

If you’re looking to purchase our services directly, and don’t require further quotes from others, you can contact us directly and simply need to let us know that you want to purchase through ‘ESPO Framework 3A’. We can then provide you with any further information you need to evidence that you’ve acquired our services through the framework.

Should you require further quotes then you’ll need to go through the formal ESPO ‘further competition’ procedures, outlining your requirements. At this point, along with others, we’ll provide you with a full quote for our services.

We hope you find this helpful and it goes some way to clarifying any concerns or questions you might have. If you have any further questions then please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
