GROW LOCAL – Helping local businesses to gain more share of the public purse
Grow Local provides the management information to assess the potential for your organisation to increase economic activity within a local area or region. The reports inform your initiatives to develop supply chain activity and encourage local companies to bid for an increased share of public sector spend on goods and services.
The analysis of existing suppliers by active spend category is linked to a directory of available suppliers, obtained from third party data sources, and presented in a suite of pre-built reports.
The reports provide easy visibility of the potential opportunity to transfer a greater share of public sector spend into the local economy – and to identify where there is currently a gap in available local suppliers.
Please note, you will be prompted to enter your Observatory login details to access these resources.
