Take advantage of the WSA Procurement Portal to make economies of scale
The Welsh Sports Association (WSA) would like to remind and urge members to take advantage of the opportunity to make economies of scale through our Procurement Portal for the sport and leisure sector, powered by our partners 2buy2 and available to both WSA and Community Leisure UK members.
Launched in October, the portal was designed in conjunction with strategic partners CLUK, establishing solutions to support the sector amid the financial challenges faced since the onset of COVID-19 and, more recently, the cost-of-living crisis.
The WSA has been keen to highlight the importance of collaboration and economies of scale to offer the sector practical solutions to deal with these mounting challenges.
The Procurement Portal provides self-service access to a range of approved supplier lists, framework agreements, quotes and pricing from pre-accredited suppliers. There also features access to a series of best practice procurement guides, templates, and procedures free of charge for both WSA and CLUK members.
There are opportunities available via 2buy2’s existing product categories, including electricity, gas, water, chemicals, telecoms, cleaning products, IT support, HR support, solar solutions, broadband and more! Additional demand-led services and products will continue to be added to the portal as and when required – determined by you!
The WSA urges all members to feed into the portal to complete the ‘Additional Needs’ section in the navigation. For new products and services where there is collaboration and the opportunity to aggregate data and spend, 2buy2 will source these products and services free of charge!
2buy2 is a Cardiff-based procurement specialist who, following the signing of a partnership agreement with the WSA, will offer advice and education, alongside the Procurement Portal, to support the sport and leisure sector.
