London Borough of Waltham Forest
The London Borough of Waltham Forest has selected Due North to provide eSourcing and Contract Management Solutions.
Waltham Forest is the 14th London Borough to implement the ProContract solution from Due North. The Local Authority had no existing opportunities portal and maintaining a list of interested suppliers was challenging. Joining the existing London Tenders portal environment will give Waltham Forest access to a large database of regional suppliers and create opportunity for collaborative procurement.
After exploring the market for an eSourcing and Contract Management solution, London Borough of Waltham Forest purchased the full ProContract Suite from Due North. They felt the Due North solution was the most user friendly, best value for money and offered the most functionality to fit with their requirements.
The comprehensive ProContract Suite will give London Borough of Waltham Forest the ability to run the sourcing process electronically and manage the contracts and suppliers more effectively. The new technology will lead to a fully transparent procurement process.
Cllr. Afzal Akram said
"The Due North ProContract system will enable Waltham Forest to meet the challenges of transparency, compliance and effective contract management, and provide local suppliers with the ability to register their details on the portal for future contract opportunities. This is part of our ongoing drive to improve access to opportunities for local businesses."
