Procurement

Just Enterprise Procurement services are designed to assist enterprising third sector organisations to successfully participate in tendering for public sector contracts and capitalise on the opportunity presented by the adoption of community benefit clauses by procurement agencies. Support is provided in 3 forms and is available to third sector organisations, or groups of organisations who can demonstrate the growth potential, or the capacity and capability, to participate in public sector tendering.

Just Enterprise will work with public sector agencies to encourage and promote the use of Community Benefit Clauses and to raise awareness of the impact they can have.
