The Sport and Leisure Procurement Service is FREE to all members of Community Leisure UK, across the UK and across portfolio areas (including sport, physical activity, leisure, green spaces, arts and culture) and includes options for procurement in the following categories:

  • Electricity. 
  • Gas.
  • Water. 
  • Chemicals. 
  • Telecoms. 
  • Cleaning products. 
  • IT Support. 
  • HR support. 
  • Solar solutions. 
  • Broadband.

Additional, demand led, services and products will continue to be added as and when required.

Visit the WSA for more information.

How Does it Work?

2buy2 will deliver several specific procurement services for eligible organisations as follows:

  • Access to an Online Procurement Portal for the Sport & Leisure Sector (due to go live in August 2022, manual version from 28 June 2022)
  • Access to a Contracts Register Tool
  • A Procurement “Health Check”

In order to access 2buy2’s energy frameworks, organisations are required to complete a manual 2buy2 DCF (Data Collection Form) and LOA (Letter of Authority).

For new products and services, where there is collaboration and the opportunity to aggregate data and spend, 2buy2 will source products and services free of charge.

If your organisation has a bespoke requirement, or one that is above PCR2015 thresholds for public spending, 2buy2 will be required to procure using a compliant tender process and this may incur a fee.

Self-Service  

The portal provides self-service access to a range of approved supplier lists, framework agreements, quotes & pricing from pre-accredited suppliers, and to access these via a RFQ (request for quote) process, will be Free. There is also access to a series of best practice procurement guides, templates, and procedures free of charge.

Access to a Contracts Register Tool

The online portal includes a self-service digital Contracts Register. Free access is provided to all organisations eligible to access. This tool will inform organisations of when contracts are ending, so they can judge when and how much time is needed to re-procure services. The system will be able to set automatic reminders for users.

A Procurement ‘Health Check’

All eligible users are eligible to access a free procurement “health check”, provided by 2Buy2. The consultation per organisation will consist of a 30-minute phone call to discuss key areas of support required and any implementation plans. The ‘health check’ can be accessed via the portal, as well as the existing WSA Helpline service on the WSA website For more information on the Sport and Leisure Procurement Service Visit the WSA website.
