Register as an associate partner today

We don’t believe in charging membership fees, which is why it’s completely free to become a SPA associate partner. Our costs are covered by a ‘levy’ applied to the value of procurement contracts.

There are two levels of partnership available to all public sector organisations – associate partner and SPA committee partner. Our SPA committee partners are appointed periodically on a rotational basis.

Becoming an associate partner is simple to do and provides multiple benefits for organisations:

  • Access to industry leading frameworks
  • Annual rebate based on individual spend during the financial year
  • Have your say on the development of future SPA frameworks
  • Access to our added value services in procurement, technical and client support
  • Access to our Call Off service

SPA committee partners eligible for community benefit fund
