Charity finance professionals have recently attended a procurement training event on the 14th of March at Cardiff Business School, designed to help them create effective and efficient tenders within their organisation.

In collaboration with the Charity Finance Group, the event was run by 2buy2 – the professional procurement company that secures financial savings on their day-to-day costs of organisations - enabling them to use that money where it matters most.

A number of training sessions took place throughout the day to explore the procurement and tender process including writing tenders, procurement methods and designing award criteria. New approaches to procurement were also explored, such as the application of lean principles and how demonstrating good procurement practice can be a key differentiator when it comes to raising funds.

Also, 2buy2’s procurement specialists helped the participants with advice regarding a number procurement issues currently present within their organisations. 2buy2 is committed to helping organisations of all sizes secure better value for money. The business also saves them time by providing a professional procurement service to vet suppliers and get better deals.

CEO of 2buy2, Rob Kissick, said:

“The event was a great success, and we were thrilled to collaborate with the Charity Finance Group to put this event on for finance professionals.

“It is imperative to know and understand the principles and best methods to put into practice, to ensure money is spent effectively. We have had great feedback from those in the professional finance community who attended, and we look forward to organising on more events like this, in the future.”
