What our clients say about us
"The thought of going through the e-tendering process and the time that it takes for you as a school leader to do so is daunting and substantial. Getting the best equipment, at a fair price was our ultimate goal but we also wanted to ensure that we did this in a fair, clear and transparent manner. We used the SPU when we were buying IT equipment and school furniture for our school. The money involved was substantial and we wanted to ensure that we were getting the best product at the best price for our school. We also wanted to be fair and equitable to everyone that took the time to apply to sell us their product. Looking back at it now the process makes sense but we would've been totally lost were it not for the SPU and we were particularly fortunate to work with Fiona Coy. Fiona was simply amazing to work with. She was very practical, patient, good humoured and helpful at all times while guiding us through each of the steps that needed to be taken. We are extremely happy with our chosen suppliers and we are happy with the way we came to the decision. Gisele (Lady from Brazil?) was also a very friendly receptionist and loved to practice her cúpla focail every time we rang! There really isn't anything else to add. Go raibh míle maith agaibh".
