The South West Procurement Alliance (SWPA) provides OJEU compliant frameworks which can be used by local authorities, social landlords and other public sector bodies to procure works, products and services for the construction, refurbishment and maintenance of social housing, schools and public buildings.
We operate in South West England connecting construction companies, manufacturers and service providers with the needs of our partners.
We bring buyers and suppliers together, to build and maintain public property more efficiently and cost effectively, and to benefit local communities.
The organisation is backed by LHC, established in 1966 and recognised as one of the most experienced and respected providers of procurement frameworks in the construction sector.
Community benefit funds
We support social value initiatives in our clients’ communities from the surplus we generate.
Members of SWPA work with Southwest Community Matters to distribute grants of up to £1,000 to local projects and causes. Southwest Community Matters was formed from South West Foundation, an organisation that supported community groups for over 20 years. In 2018-19, SWPA distributed grants to three groups in total. They have a fund of £17,000 to distribute in the coming year.
