Insights Spend, previously known as Porge Research Illuminator, is seen as the most accurate source of UK public sector procurement spend data. It draws from more than 200m categorised invoices from 2m suppliers across 1000+ public sector organisations, ranging from councils and local government, NHS trusts and ICSs through to emergency services and government departments.

Each month Insights Spend analyses over 1.7m invoices to give you fast and reliable public contracts data to support your decision-making.

Insights Spend’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, Insights Spend is an essential tool for driving best value and public procurement best practice in the United Kingdom.

Insights Spend 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.
