The Procurement Bill was introduced to the House of Lords on 11 May 2022, outlining the UK Government’s proposed reforms to public procurement in a post-Brexit world. The government sees the new bill as an opportunity to create a “simpler, more flexible system” of procurement, meeting key objectives of value for money, transparency and integrity, while also improving accessibility to SMEs and social enterprises.
The public sector’s need for cyber security solutions is on the rise. 40% of the cyber incidents managed by the National Cyber Security Centre between September 2020 and August 2021 were aimed at the public sector, making it a pivotal time for cyber security suppliers to ensure they are aware of and prepared for upcoming opportunities.
Increased demand for cyber security suppliers and growing budgets for cyber initiatives have resulted in far greater competition for companies bidding on public sector opportunities.The major question on the minds of suppliers is how they can get ahead of tenders and involved with buyer organisations before the competition.

Everybody knows working with the government can be extremely profitable, but B2B companies often struggle to kick-start their B2G sales journey.

In 2020, our co-founders Taj, Carsten, and John started Stotles with the vision of building technology to transform the world's biggest (and most overlooked) market: business-to-government.Today, we’re excited to announce that we’ve raised a $6.5 million seed round led by Headline to take our technology, our team, and our vision to the next level.
It’s been all systems go at Stotles HQ recently. We shipped some major product updates and new releases in Q3, all with the intention of making it easier for our users to sell to the public sector. This blog post highlights some of our favourite new features that we think will have the most impact on private sector suppliers working with the government.
According to the NHS ICS Design Framework, NHS England will make financial allocations to every ICS. The spending decisions at the system level and budget distribution across partner organisations will then be the responsibility of each ICS.From April 2022, thanks to the new Health and Social Care Levy, UK-wide healthcare funding will rise by a record £36 billion over the next 3 years. The new funding includes a commitment to ring-fence an additional £8 billion to fund waiting list recovery – the biggest catch-up programme in NHS history.
One major funding announcement was made in the UK Government’s recent Spending Review. The review states a further £700 million has been allocated to all major regions across the UK to support the NHS this winter via the Targeted Investment Fund (TIF).
ICSs are partnerships that bring together public bodies and public healthcare service providers across geographic regions.The main aim of ICSs is to centralise health and care across public organisations and governing bodies in order to better meet the needs of their populations.
In transitioning to a more centralised digital healthcare offering, England's health and care has been split into 42 different ICS organisations.Understanding ICS structures, their partners, and their decision-makers is how the most successful suppliers create relationships and new opportunities earlier (before public tender).
We know how overly complex and bureaucratic it can be for suppliers to find a tender.This blog post details how the public sector advertises upcoming tenders, simplifies the different types of tender available and explains where you can find the most promising tenders for your business. First, let's cover the basics.
Across the world, governments publish their business opportunities - also known as "tenders" - to the public. Tenders exist for most everything a government needs to deliver public services - even peculiar needs like this £456k opportunity to build a BMX bike racing track or this purchase of £5m worth of beer. So you may be thinking, "governments are becoming more transparent. That's great!"
