Pro5


Pro5 logo

Pro5 is four of the largest public sector professional buying organisations in the UK with a combined purchasing power in excess of £2 billion per annum.

Working together the Pro5 uses its extensive buying power to help local authorities in England & Wales:

  • get the best value deals in key markets on commonly purchased goods and services
  • deliver savings and therefore contribute to local efficiency targets
  • save time and effort by accessing pre-negotiated compliant procurement arrangements.

The work of Pro5

Pro5 is also working towards accreditation with the Office of Government Commerce's pan-government collaboration strategy for all frameworks that carry the Pro5 framework agreement mark. Pro5 is working together to put in place national framework agreements that ensure you get the best value on commonly purchased goods and services. Over time Pro5 will extend the number of nationally available frameworks so that more of these great deals will be accessible to local authorities across England and Wales.

Where you see frameworks with the Pro5 logo you can rest assured that the framework represents the best value national deal available through the Pro5.

Those frameworks which do not carry the Pro5 logo still offer excellent value for money but may not be available nationally. Please check with the relevant Pro5 member offering the framework for details.
