What are your school’s procurement challenges? Stationery, school uniform, catering, cleaning, maintenance services? You name it, we can help. Contact us now to book your appointment.
We will work with you to define your needs and establish the objectives for stretching the Rand and improving quality.
We will relieve you of the burden of developing Request for Quotations (RFQs) and our best in class tools will ensure accurate tender responses and maximise savings without compromising on quality.
Your RFQ is launched and advertised to suppliers. As responses come in, we will guide you through every step and will handle any questions that may come in from bidders as well.
Evaluating the bids is often the most exciting part of the process (for us at least). We will use our best in class evaluation tools to show how each bidder performs against pre-determined evaluation criteria allowing you to a select supplier with confidence and ensure that any selection decision is one that can be justified.
Once the preferred supplier has been selected, we will inform bidders of the outcome, prepare all paperwork, including the contract, and support you with the implementation.
We work in the background so teachers and the school management team can focus on the day-to-day business of doing what schools do best: educating. And when we do need you, we will reach out only at major decision points and milestones.
Our services do not add to the already tight school budget, which means you won't not need to find additional funding. We offer our unparalleled expertise at no risk to you and our fee is a percentage of what you save.
At SweetSpot we drive positive social change through the power of procurement. For this reason we will forfeit a part of our fees to an Education Fund that supports your school's sponsorship program for disadvantaged children. Similarly, we encourage you to match our contribution from any realised savings you make. Let us drive positive social change together!
