Supplier barriers to entry in public sector markets

government suppliers

Public Spend Forum, the market intelligence platform and community for public sector buyers and suppliers, and Govshop, its free-to-use database that houses supplier data from various markets, have been conducting a survey to explore the barriers to entry that suppliers are facing when trying to get into public sector markets. They have looked at all levels of the public sector, including central/federal, local and at state level, and gathered feedback from suppliers about their experiences and challenges of working with, or trying to work with, the public sector. The report targets why this $10 trillion global market is so difficult to navigate, and why there are still so many barriers challenging companies, small and large, that wish to do business with it.
