Spend Analysis

Use Spend Analysis to discover who your competitors are winning business with so you can target your market more effectively and find new business opportunities.

Driving Business Decisions through Data

Our procurement Spend Analysis software is a powerful tender tool designed to help businesses explore public sector spend data.

By including procurement spend analytics software in your spend analysis process, you and your procurement teams will have relevant spend analysis data at your fingertips, giving you complete confidence that you understand the UK public sector marketplace.

Procurement Spend Analysis for Clearer Spend Visibility

Spend Analysis collates and publishes all English public sector spend data in line with the Government’s Transparency Agenda, which requires UK local and central government to publish details of all transactions over £500 and £25,000 respectively.

Our research team checks over 1,000 sources and collates this data in one central place — Tracker.

One Tender Tool for the Entire Spend Analysis Process

When it comes to spend data published in accordance with the Transparency Agenda, the process of deciphering what is important and what is not can cause many SMEs to look past important aspects such as spend award information and buyer/supplier information.

This is all simplified on the spend analytics dashboard of your Tracker account. Here, you can search and filter according to suppliers, buyers, industry sectors & regions and see graphs of everything from the number of transactions to the income for each project.

With this overview and level of insight, you can improve your market positioning by keeping tabs on new market entrants, gaining a better understanding of competitor wins, and even identifying potential sub-contracting opportunities in your industry.

Equip Yourself with Past Data

Spend visibility in public sector procurement is regulated by the Government’s Transparency Agenda. So we know, for example, that the NHS spends roughly a third of its £122 billion budget procuring goods and services.

With Tracker’s procurement Spend Analysis solution, you can also see who a local authority’s preferred suppliers are based on past contract awards and what the supplier performance was like based on the awards thereafter.

Plan According to the Latest Projections

The public sector’s spend for 2023 throughout the United Kingdom is projected to be in the region of £1,083 billion.

The highest of these sectors are:

  • Pensions (£169.4 billion)
  • Health Care (£213.5 billion)
  • Education (£101.7 billion)
  • Defence (£57.7 billion)

While procurement spend accounts for only a proportion of these totals, this means there will be many opportunities for suppliers.

Effective procurement spend analysis will help you to turn these figures into valuable intelligence that you can use to actually increase your market share.

And, by knowing who competitors are winning tenders with, you can identify the areas in which you can make a place for yourself.
