We are Bloom. Our approach to professional services procurement is different.

We specialise in bringing together a community of buyers and suppliers to help the public sector buy professional services better. We’re transforming procurement by opening up the way it’s done, giving the best choice for buyers and more business opportunities for suppliers, big or small.

We were established in 2012 as the UK’s exclusive operator of the NEPO Specialist Professional Services neutral vendor solution. Our business is now the trusted partner to 320+ public sector organisations and 6,500+ supplier organisations.

Our outcomes-based philosophy is central to our community. By thinking about the ultimate outcomes, rather than the initial demand, we deliver not only the services you want, but the changes you need to see. It’s a different way of working that means the very best value, the end of scope creep and the expertise your projects deserve.

Our expert client managers work with you to understand the detail of your broader mission and then build a brief for you that will maximise results.

Understanding requirements is crucial to matching the right suppliers to our buyers, and whilst we’re fully invested in delivering for you, we’re more than simply a gateway for your professional service needs.
