Brokerage Services provides guidance and collates client requirements for input into Office of Government Procurement (OGP) tender processes. Simply contact Brokerage Services for advice in this regard.

  • (HEAnet’s) Brokerage Services generates real savings for us, but also saves us time because we don’t have to engage in separate procurement exercises.

    Our last two storage area networks have been purchased via (Brokerage Services) frameworks and it’s been excellent. We’ve purchased servers via Brokerage Services and all our desktop PCs are being purchased via their frameworks. They’re also facilitating a major cloud-based service for us.

    If you take a procurement exercise – when the groundwork is done by HEAnet… it enables us to be far more agile in what we do.
