About Us

Transforming commercial services together through proven processes
delivering tangible value, savings and innovation

 

BlueLight Commercial was established in 2020 by the Home Office, to work in collaboration with blue light organisations and local/national suppliers, to help transform their commercial services. We have been set up as 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 with an agile commercial engagement model.

BlueLight Commercial is owned by our members, which includes policing bodies and other blue light sector organisations such as the College of Policing and National Crime Agency. Every Police and Crime Commissioner in England and Wales is a member of BlueLight Commercial.

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. 

The BlueLight Commercial team is drawn from blue light organisations, industry and other public and private sector businesses. It’s this diversity that allows us to see things from a different perspective, while still having a fundamental understanding of the specific needs of the forces we work with. 

 

 

Our broad experience enables us to offer different processes and an innovative approach. We pride ourselves on a focussed and creative mindset that looks outside of the box to search for opportunities for us all to deliver the best solution we can.

We operate in virtual teams of commercial specialists with a dedicated lead to support local and regional needs. We offer practical advice on all aspects of the Commercial Lifecycle and we actively manage strategic suppliers to secure maximum value for the forces. By ensuring regional requirements are understood from a national perspective we are able to optimise negotiation strength and mitigate risk.

Our work has a direct and positive benefit to the people and the world around us. By partnering with blue light organisations we are influencing the use of public resources, as we create social value that is put back directly into front-line services. Through our collaboration with suppliers we are able to shape the environmental impact of the supply chain and deliver trusted products where they are needed most.
