Illuminator+ already gives your public sector procurement and commissioning teams the supply chain intelligence they need to create their purchasing plans.

Now, by combining Illuminator’s categorised spend data with ratings from the Care Quality Commission (CQC), care commissioners can review each supplier relationship and assess the size and standard of incumbent and alternative service providers quickly with a single tool. This can help you identify contracting opportunities with local contractors, supporting local jobs and boosting the social value of your spending decisions.

Illuminator is the UK’s best source of public sector spend data. It draws from millions of categorised invoices from almost 2m suppliers across 1000+ public sector organisations. This data is essential for organisations who want to keep track of their contract spending and reassure stakeholders that your past purchases and future plans deliver both value for money and local social impact.
