GVA Acuity is pleased to introduce its new procurement portal. This online tool will help drive efficiency in the procurement process as well as offer complete transparency at every stage - the absolute cornerstone of any procurement.

The new web based portal drives efficiency, consistency and governance through electronically sealed tenders.

The portal arrives on top of the recently developed strategic analysis tool, which delivers real value for clients by ensuring best price against a defined standard, as well as our targeted bidder profiling that matches bidders' services directly to our clients' needs, ensuring the highest service standards.

GVA Acuity procures services for many leading organisations including Land Securities, Shire Pharmaceuticals, Cineworld Cinemas, and Great Portland Estates.

Our procurement approach is simply to ensure that our clients get the right service, by the right vendor, at the right price in compliance with all the right governance and controls.

Martyn Hayward, Director and head of the GVA Acuity procurement team comments: "I am delighted at the launch of this new portal. We listen to our clients' requests and this is another significant step on our continuous improvement journey for procurement."
