Water

Procurement

Prior to the deregulation of the UK water market in 2017 companies were unable to choose who supplied water to their sites - this led to high costs and difficulties in managing multi-site portfolios.
Since 2017 businesses, charities and public sector organisations in England are no longer restricted to buying water services from their local supplier. Instead, they now have the opportunity to reduce costs on water expenditure through procurement exercises. Companies can renegotiate and tender their water contracts and find a supplier that offers the best deal for their organisational needs.

Water Supply Contracts

Despite these changes, many businesses still default to their local suppliers and miss out on opportunities to reduce their water usage, lower their bill costs, and renegotiate their supply contracts.

Our Water Procurement Process

The water market operates much like the energy market. McGrady Clarke has full market coverage, enabling us to deliver cost reductions on water expenditure through a fully managed tender process.

We first carry out a gap analysis to understand the current position of contracts, then assess the data quality and make recommendations as to how this can be improved. Once we have collected sufficient data, we tender to the market and provide an overview of costs from different providers.

We understand that water invoices create a significant administrative burden for many businesses; McGrady Clarke will use our strong supplier relationships and internal validation systems to improve this process saving you both time and money.

How does the water market work?
