New Merseyside contracts vision

A 'chamber of commerce' for voluntary organisations has opened in Merseyside to help non-profit organisations win more public sector contracts.

The Merseyside Single Procurement Vision has been established with £1.7m of funding from the EU and £3.2m from partner organisations, including six local authorities.

"Having spent 20 years working in the public sector, I know we have only scratched the surface of the voluntary sector in assisting us to deliver large-scale contracts," said Gerald Murden, enterprise director for Plus Housing Group, which co-founded the initiative.

Murden estimated that public sector contracts worth roughly £35bn a year were available across Merseyside.
