Time Savings – Direct Award gives organisations the opportunity to come to market even if they haven’t allowed enough time to run a competitive dialogue. By directly awarding a contract, the buyer can ensure there is less downtime between identifying a need and fulfilling it with our fast-deployable solutions, whilst using a compliant procurement process.
Enhance Value for Money – Running a competitive process can be very time-consuming and costly, buyers can achieve better value for money through economies of scale as suppliers may offer more competitive prices.
Reduced Administrative costs – Choosing to directly award a contract reduces the number of procedures a contracting authority has to run, and therefore decrease the time and costs linked to carrying out procurement.
