About Us

We work with members to transform their commercial procurement activity, resulting in bottom-line improvements, delivering cost and time savings and a more sustainable future

 

National collaboration and direction, delivered locally

 

BlueLight Commercial was established by the Home Office and policing sector in June 2020, to work in collaboration with blue light organisations to help transform commercial services. We are a not for profit, private company limited by guarantee, which under the procurement regulations is able to act as a contracting authority; creating a single voice to the market and an agile commercial engagement model.

We are a membership-based company. Membership is open to any organisation with a purpose or interest in the delivery of efficient and effective commercial services in support of blue light services. 

Current membership of BlueLight Commercial consists the 40 Police and Crime Commissioners of England and Wales, Mayor’s Office of Policing and Crime, 2 Combined Authorities, College of Policing, Royal Gibraltar Police, Sovereign Base Areas Police (Cyprus), Civil Nuclear Constabulary, British Transport Police, Kent and Medway Town Fire Authority, Police Service of Northern Ireland, Ministry of Justice, Jersey Police Authority and Humberside Fire and Rescue Service. 

Our work has a direct and positive benefit: by partnering with blue light organisations we influence the use of public resources, creating social value put back directly into front-line services.

We offer practical advice on all aspects of the Commercial Lifecycle and manage strategic suppliers to secure maximum value. By ensuring regional requirements are understood from a national perspective we are able to optimise negotiation strength and mitigate risk.

Through our collaboration with suppliers we can shape the environmental impact of the supply chain and deliver tried and trusted products where they are needed most.

Our remote team of commercial specialists is drawn from blue light organisations, industry and other public and private sector businesses, enabling the diversity to see things from a different perspective whilst still having a fundamental understanding of the specific needs of blue light services.
