Sustain Lincolnshire

Sustainable Procurement Clusters

SUSTAIN Lincolnshire is helping Lincolnshire SMEs to become more environmentally and economically sustainable through Sustainable Procurement Support.

Any SME’s with a desire to improve its purchasing and cost control can have the benefit of support from Oakwell Management Services Ltd,  purchasing experts who utilise a proven ‘workbook’, technique devised with the help of the Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply and the Henley Management Centre, aimed specifically at SME’s.

The objective is to help SMEs improve their purchasing techniques, emphasising environmental and economic sustainability to generate real savings for the business, and sharing experiences in a collaborative way.

Initially, Oakwell visit the customer company and spend a short time with the Managing Director/Purchasing Manager to ascertain where help is required. This diagnosis is used to demonstrate how to improve procurement/purchasing process/s that are identified as ‘in need of enhancement’, and deploying experts for a maximum of two days fully funded consultancy support.

The project will help enhance small businesses that have purchasing as part of their daily routine, to make significant savings for their organisation, and allow them to collaborate with like minded organisations.
