History of the Essex Procurement Hub 

The Essex Procurement Hub was set up in 2006 after a review of procurement across a number of Essex Authorities.

The role of the Hub is to provide strategic and operational procurement support, advice and guidance that adds demonstrable value to the procurement process to its members.

Outline of the Essex Procurement Hub

The Hub let and manage a number of National Framework agreements that are accessible to any UK Public Authority.

The underlying ethos of the Hub is cooperation and collaboration. Members have agreed to treat the Hub team as part of their own staff and, whilst officially based at Braintree, the team frequently work across all hub sites. Current members are: 

  • Braintree District Council
  • Castle Point Borough Council
  • Epping Forest District Council
  • Maldon District Council 
  • Rochford District Council

Each Hub member has an allocated lead contact with a regular presence at their location. These individuals are all MCIPS qualified and provide both strategic and operational support. They have many years’ experience in differing areas of procurement and work together to make the best use of this pool of knowledge.

Benefits to Hub members include; cost savings through the use of the Hub’s Framework agreements, increased opportunities for collaboration, an onsite procurement presence and business risk mitigation.

If your organisation is interested in becoming a member of the Hub or would like more information about the services we offer please contact [email protected].
