Procurement Prospectus, Wakefield, UK

In May 2010 Wakefield Council (UK) started to develop a strategy to procure a highly energy efficient lighting system for a new swimming pool and leisure complex.

Recognising that there were significant innovations in the field of lighting, Wakefield made a procurement prospectus available to the market providing details on their proposed project and inviting suggestions from all tiers of the supply chain to come forward with innovative proposals.

The most promising responses to the prospectus were followed up with workshops. Furthermore a directory of businesses that responded was published online to encourage partnering between suppliers in preparation for the call for tender.
