I found YPO extremely helpful in appointing contractors to provide a town Ranger service for a large town council. They guided throughout the process, providing all necessary documentation and support to achieve what has been a very successful outcome. Staff (Sally Pemberton) were always at the end of the phone or email to respond to whatever queries were asked. I would recommend using YPO to any public sector organisation who wish to procure services within this framework.”  

Trevor Askew - Consultant, working for Royal Sutton Coldfield Town Council

I have worked with YPO on numerous occasions and have always found my experience to be very positive. They have supported our authority to achieve compliance, realise cost efficiencies, they have helped us ensure we have maximised added value in our Procurements and also worked with us to extend supply chains to open up the market to more competition. ”  

Rob Debenham - Procurement Category Manager at Doncaster Council

I chose to run a further competition through YPO’s 881 Grounds Maintenance DPS, utilising this DPS enabled our Trust to onboard and involve our incumbent contractor. YPO’s Facilities Management Team and further competition co-ordinator provided valuable experience and support throughout the process. I would highly recommend YPO frameworks to other contracting authorities.”
