B2G - ˌbiːtəˈdʒiː - adjective & noun
abbr. for business-to-government
B2G help public and private sector clients build and maintain property across the UK, to generate both commercial and social value
We've been set this task by Gold Hill HA, on whose behalf we tender and manage the frameworks and DPS, and with whom we share the 1% levy applied to all invoices raised on any project, programme or term contract 'called off', to support community initiatives we select together.
Whilst GHHA are in Buckinghamshire, the B2G team are based across the UK, and we leverage our procurement & construction expertise gained in both public & private sectors, as client, contractor and central purchasing body, to provide services both national in scale and suited to all asset types.
We're a new team of old hands, and it helps that we've acted as client, supplier and intermediary, and worked with most types of public body - whether central, local, agency, trust, association or charity - and most types and size of supplier, at all level of the supply chain, at all stages of a project.
We treat both public sector buyers and private sector suppliers equally as 'clients', which breeds trust and teamwork, and helps deliver projects on spec, on time and on budget.
Richard, Susie and Nigel have worked together for years, having met at a national central purchasing body, where Richard developed and managed the frameworks, Susie monitored the projects being delivered across the country, and Nigel led the operation.
So when the chance arose to reform the team we took it, knowing we had shared values: a philosophy of treating both contracting authority and contractor equally as 'clients', which breeds trust and teamwork; and a commitment to getting the job done, and done properly!
In simple terms, Richard creates it, Nigel packages and tenders it, Susie supports the projects, and we call on a network of specialists spread across disciplines and regions as and when needed.
So there's no fat in the business, and everyone adds value. And because we keep it lean, we keep the levy low, so your budget is spent on your property, not our procurement process!
