The Supplier Locator Service and SME Agenda
UK Government and Public Sector spend with SMEs is continually on the increase, spending in excess of £220Billion on goods and services every single year. It has been the stated intent of The Cabinet Office that £1 of every £3 of Government spend should go to SMEs. The Governments SME Agenda and Action Plan has seen Government make a priority of getting money through its supply chain into the hands of SMEs, by both setting targets and introducing new procurement mechanisms. Against this backdrop, the Wired-Gov Supplier Locator Service has been developed specifically to embrace the SME Agenda and provide a platform for SMEs and Suppliers to communicate directly with buyers and decision makers across the entire Government & Public Sector community.

The Supplier Locator Service provides a trusted platform for Government and Public Sector buyers to request quotes and enquire directly with Suppliers for lower value, less complex products and services where the contract is not required to go through a tendering procedure.  The platform also enables its Suppliers to communicate direct to Government desktops and to promote their capability to supply certain goods and services through its industry news and outbound communication channels.
