PROCUREMENT SERVICES, DESIGNED AND
DELIVERING FOR THE PUBLIC SECTOR

Proxima is a specialist procurement consultancy working with the public and private sectors to deliver economic and social value.

We’re helping a number of government departments and other public bodies with commercial programmes ranging from complex sourcing programmes, to transformation, to efficiency drives and social value.

BEST OF BOTH WORLDS – A LEADER, BUT ALSO AN SME

Whilst technically an SME, Proxima has one of the UK’s largest procurement consulting practices. And it’s not just about scale; it’s about capability, too; we offer a range of solutions tailored to the commercial challenges of today.

What makes us different is that we’re specialists and that we don’t just set the strategy or write the report; we make the change happen, hence our strong reputation and reference ability for ‘delivery’ of outcomes.

Our people are regularly embedded into commercial teams, or parachuted in, on demand for specific challenges that we can solve. They come armed with a support network of ideas, tools and practical experience.

WHAT WE DO

Our service suite is wide-ranging, and we offer both defined products and bespoke services, reflecting the nature of the challenges faced by different public sector bodies. Broadly our services sit into three buckets:

We are able to bring public sector expertise and fresh perspectives from the private sector, where we are also the leading pure-play consultancy for large corporates in the UK and North America.

EASY TO WORK WITH AND EXTERNALLY ACCREDITED

We are on the MCF3 framework making us easy to work with and providing assurance that we meet all the standards expected of a government consulting partner. We have also worked with public sector bodies through the NEPRO solution and PSR SoW.

We are a committed member of the Management Consulting Association (MCA), the UK’s professional body underpinning our commitment to excellence, and have been recognised by the Financial Times as a leading UK consultancy for our work in public sector procurement.

MAKING A PURPOSEFUL CHOICE

With social value high on the agenda, we’re already delivering social value programmes for government commercial functions bringing method and expertise. Within Proxima, our ‘Proxima with Purpose’ initiative, led by employees, focuses on how Proxima and our team can positively contribute to society.

‘Proxima with Purpose’ is aligned to six UNSDGs and covers many Proxima initiatives such as NetZero, Living Wage, work experience schemes and working with social enterprises, through to education and community schemes such as our DE&I framework, gender and racial equality networks and charitable giving schemes.

Our UK corporate charities are; Alzheimer’s Research UK and Mind.

We are proud holders of a three-star accreditation from Best Companies in the UK, defining Proxima as having outstanding levels of staff engagement and being one of the best companies to work for in the UK. Our company, clients, and people are also award-winning, having recently been shortlisted or winners with CIPS, Procurement Leaders and the MCA.
