About The PAE

The Procurement Alliance for Essex (PAE)

 Provides a procurement forum for members ranging from best practice advice to collaborative tender opportunities

Established in April 2004, the Procurement Alliance for Essex was the UK’s first example of a genuinely cross public sector, self–funding & county wide Procurement organisation.

The PAE continues to promote good cross public-sector procurement practices and encourage collaboration amongst its members. Since 2004 its membership has grown steadily to include County Council, Further Education, Fire & Rescue Service, Housing Associations and Local Authorities as current members.
