The Supplier Development Programme (SDP) has welcomed Wheatley Group as its first Housing Association member. Wheatley Group will now be able to utilise the Supplier Development Programme to alert the market of upcoming contract and framework opportunities to more than 14,500 registered micro, small, medium and supported businesses.

To put this new partnership’s best foot forward in 2020, Wheatley Group, the Dumfries and Galloway Housing Partnership (DGHP), which recently joined Wheatley, and the Supplier Development Programme have organised a regional Meet the Buyer event in Dumfries on 20 January 2020.

The event is aimed at small and medium sized businesses in Dumfries and Galloway, Scottish Borders, South Ayrshire and other local authority areas that want to be involved in future public sector contracts with DGHP.

SMEs will learn about upcoming opportunities and take part in workshop sessions delivered by the Supplier Development Programme, including topics such as top tips for tendering and working with the public sector.

Gillian Cameron, Supplier Development Programme Manager, said:

“We are aware that typically small businesses want to do work with housing associations, and we are delighted to welcome Wheatley Group as our first housing association member.

“Our future work with Wheatley Group promises to be a dynamic partnership that will create a more joined up approach, linking to potential framework opportunities, including those through one of our other new members, the Scottish Procurement Alliance, as well as the wider public sector.”
