Illuminating public sector spend
Help your commissioners, procurement and category managers set strategy, manage your supply chain and make data-led contract decisions by benchmarking your own public contracts alongside those of other contracting authorities.
Illuminator also improves your procurement process by helping government buyers like you stop ‘tail spend’ – spend with another supplier when a contracted private sector supplier is already in place.
Previously Porge Research, Illuminator is seen as the most accurate source of UK public sector procurement spend data. Illuminator draws from more than 200m categorised invoices from 2m suppliers across 1000+ public sector organisations, ranging from councils and local government, NHS trusts and CCGs through to emergency services and government departments.
Each month Illuminator analyses over 1.7m invoices to give you fast and reliable public contracts data to support your decision-making.
Illuminator’s unique spend categorisation means comparing local government authorities, other public sector buyers and suppliers is easy, with downloadable reports and charts.
Trusted by major organisations including the National Audit Office, Illuminator is an essential tool for driving best value and public procurement best practice in the United Kingdom.
Illuminator gives you unbiased market intelligence on government spending with SMEs and local suppliers. Nothing else will give your procurement team such deep public procurement spending data.
