Basware cataloguing

Getting new suppliers set up using the Basware system has not been without its challenges. We are therefore very grateful to the many local authorities that helped local suppliers on the framework overcome these challenges. We have also been targeting suppliers to provide help and support and, over the coming months, we will be actively working with our suppliers to support them further on their development journey.

Delivering on the Well-being of Future Generations

We are meeting with our suppliers on 23 July 2018 to consult them on a range of measures to allow us to identify trends and take action to secure the well-being of future generations. We have been working alongside WRAP and the Future Generations Commissioner’s office to develop the measures.
