TPPL 20-year anniversary

3 July 2024

April 2024 marked the 20th anniversary of The Procurement Partnership Limited (TPPL). The business was formed in 2004 by founding directors, Jim Brennan, Stephen Hall, and James Russell. To celebrate, staff came together to enjoy a trip to Windsor races arriving at the racecourse via river boat cruises down the River Thames. It was an ideal opportunity for the directors and staff to come together and celebrate 20 years of supporting the public sector through our collaborative approach to private, public partnerships.


Starting out as an informal purchasing club for local authorities to buy vehicles competitively, today TPPL proudly boasts a range of 11 procurement solutions consisting compliant purchase, rental, and leasing options for a diverse range of fleet assets and associated services/products.

The solutions, made up of Framework Agreements and Dynamic Purchasing Systems (DPS) are accessed by over 900 public sector organisations across the United Kingdom, including 95% of all UK Local Authorities. We support the procurement of more than £300 million pounds of equipment and services per annum for members. As we continue to expand and develop the range of solutions and services available, our mission remains the same; to deliver the very best procurement solutions and support to our members.

Part of this delivery includes the outstanding level of expert support and guidance, provided by our experienced industry representatives and procurement experts. From the very beginning our people provide technical advice and guidance to help shape procurement specifications ensuring a compliant, fit for purpose outcome, delivered at the most competitive cost following an efficient process, saving members not only time but money.

Our advice is transparent and uniquely tailored to provide members with flexibility. Our business utilises fully auditable industry recognised platforms to support member procurements enabling them to remain fully compliant.

TPPL members are at the heart of everything we do. We are proud to support them to remain compliant and achieve efficient, value for money outcomes for the tax paying public. We thank all of our customers, suppliers, and partners who have supported and contributed to our journey over the last 20-years.

We look forward to working with, and supporting Public Sector organisations, for many years to come!
