n3 for Government


n3 works alongside AoG and syndicated contracts


With the introduction of All of Government contracts in 2011, Government organisations now have more options than ever when it comes to making purchasing decisions. Not all departments are the same, and you may find that an AoG contract does not fully meet your needs. That’s where we can help.

With over one hundred different supplier contracts available, n3 is your go-to for all your purchasing needs that fall outside of the suppliers available through AoG and syndicated contracts. We work alongside your pre-existing relationships to save you time and money on your tail-end spend, leaving you free to focus on those key strategic spend areas.

Tackling this tail spend effectively is becoming more important for medium and large organisations who want to save time as well as financial resources. In our latest whitepaper 'Tail end spend under the microscope', we look at the problem and the opportunity that lies within.
