Buying Support Agency (BSA) is a procurement support company, founded in 2002 and based in Cheltenham. Our team of procurement experts deliver for our clients across all sectors significant total cost savings and supply chain risk reduction, as well as enabling clients to reallocate staff time to focus on more business critical issues. For medium and large sized organisations we offer independent procurement health checks, staff purchasing training workshops and tender outsourcing.
And BSA Buying Group is used by hundreds of clients, large and small, to leverage significant cost savings (up to 35%) across 24 different cost categories via our supplier partner frameworks. Costs covered include utilities, telecoms, business rates, stationery and office supplies, commercial and health insurances, travel booking, print, packaging, professional services, IT support, waste recycling, catering and cleaning supplies, work wear, photocopiers, archiving and expenses management. The final two cost categories introduced in 2016 are commercial vehicle leasing and staff perks via BSA SmartCash. Finally, we offer advice in sustainable procurement. We have a website, GreenBuying.co.uk, which supplies the best of British eco-friendly business and school supplies (e.g. recycling bins, recycled stationery, non-toxic cleaning supplies, children’s playground equipment and benches, sustainable energy). And in 2016 we’ll be launching a business trade waste exchange.Our mission is to create amazing value for clients and society through the power of supply chains. So as well as helping to boost client’s profits and cash flow, we also use our skills to give back to society. Hence we’ve developed BSA 4 Charity to generate funds for charities plus we educate schools in sustainable procurement.
