We offer multiple routes to market and intelligent procurement solutions.

We ensure delivery of quality outcomes from our pre-approved and ever growing network of suppliers and consultants. Our fully compliant, open access marketplace is outcomes based, meaning our public sector members only pay for what is delivered.

CHIC provides a compliant, managed procurement service covering:

CHIC’s frameworks are published as “unranked”, providing the flexibility you need to work with the suppliers you want. We offer both direct award and mini competition as routes to market.

This is underpinned by CHIC’s own automated software to oversee all procurement procedures, the CHIC eSourcing portal.

CHIC’s suppliers will be able to move the administrative burden of finding quality suppliers for our members. The service looks at a range of business aspects which apply to the work our members undertake – from financials to operational processes, including compliance issues, i.e. Health & Safety.

Constructionline offers valuable services to the construction industry, particularly small and medium sized businesses, helping them bypass common typical problems associated with the tender process, saving everyone time and money. CHIC suppliers will be able to move through the tender process in a more streamlined fashion through accreditation with Constructionline.
