MTW has been appointed by London Borough of Islington to help introduce a Local Procurement initiative for local construction companies and related services. As a first step we are compiling a database of relevant companies based in the borough. This will be an online directory which can be searched by buyers looking for local companies in particular trades.
The directory will form part of the Council’s Local Progressive Procurement Support Scheme which will support local SMEs to access opportunities from building and refurbishment projects in the borough and anchor institutions. This first step will help buyers to find local companies and give local SMEs a better chance of winning work from projects in the area.
