SOUTH LONDON PROCUREMENT NETWORK
The South London Procurement Network (SLPN) was launched on 11th October 2012 to work with small to medium enterprises (SMEs) in the Borough of Lambeth and also more widely across South London to help them access and bid for contracts from major businesses and projects based in the area.
A not-for-profit organisation, the SLPN is based at the Shell Centre in Waterloo. The main aim of SLPN is to maximise business opportunities for local SMEs by enabling them to take advantage of new supply chain market opportunities presented by existing and new developments. Activities include recruiting a network of businesses who are inviting contract bids from local companies, working with SMEs in the areas to assist them with contract bids and to become fit to supply as well as holding networking events for suppliers and buyers to meet. All services are FREE of charge as this initiative is privately funded by Canary Wharf Group and Qatari Diar for the initial period.
