  •  “Lorraine, thank you so much for the quick and efficient service you and Zenergi have provided to The Abbey School in regards to our gas and electricity contract renewals.  It has been a lot easier than it ever was with CMR.  In addition it’s very reassuring to know you will be monitoring our bills on an ongoing basis. We would be very happy to recommend your services to other schools.”

  • “…the procurement exercise has generated significant savings for the College.
    The College obviously has to ensure that all suppliers are covered to work with children and Minerva was able to ensure the suppliers have relevant cover. Minerva provided support throughout the process and was available for interviews and meetings to ensure the decision making process was made simpler.
    The work Minerva completed for the College enabled us to review all proposals in a very clear manner and was instrumental in making sensible decisions on the projects. I would have no hesitation in recommending the services of Minerva for future procurement in the College or for other businesses.”
    – Derek Fargher, Financial Controller, Bradfield College
  • I wanted to formally thank you for all the extremely hard work that you and Lucy put into supporting us through this complex process which has enabled us to secure excellent services at very competitive prices. Your tenacity and willingness to chase down every detail has made the ‘maze’ much easier to negotiate and has certainly given me a great deal of confidence that due process has been followed correctly.

  • “It is now a month since the outcome of the negotiations that Minerva undertook on behalf of the School and that the resulting transport contract has been in force.   Can I firstly say a very big thank you for the time you personally put in to obtaining the baseline information and the comparison of services and costs and briefing me on the results.  The quality and standard of the groundwork and the final report was first class and exceeded all my expectations.   As a direct result of your involvement we now have a supplier who meets an agreed and realistic specification, with proper terms and conditions in place, at a very acceptable price.  I genuinely sleep much sounder at night knowing that this area of school operations is assured.
    As I said at the time, if it hadn’t been for Minerva I would still be using an unsatisfactory service provider, simply because I did not have the time available nor the necessary expertise to review and revise the situation I had inherited.  Once again – thank you – and please stay in touch.  If required I would unreservedly recommend Minerva Procurement Consultancy Services Limited for similar projects.”
    – Roger Walker, Director of Operations , Notting Hill & Ealing High School
  • Southcote Primary School have used Minerva Procurement for several years now. They have procured cleaning services, HR, telephony systems and photocopiers.

    On all occasions they have dealt with matters efficiently and professionally arranging presentations from prospective suppliers through to signing off the contracts and checking through the “small print”.

    They have followed up issues with preferred suppliers following acceptance of contracts and continue to do so on our behalf.

    I cannot recommend them enough.
    – Lesley Rooney, Bursar, Southcote Primary School
  • immediate savings, amounting to £000’s…..Minerva Procurement Consultancy were thorough, detailed and analytical in their approach whilst not being intrusive…..I would have no hesitation in using Minerva again, for any audit, small or large, and would recommend their service to anyone

  • Nathan was very responsive to our needs and kept us informed throughout the process. Communication was timely and professional, and Minerva obviously has an excellent knowledge of statutory tender requirements for public bodies. We were impressed with the service and the support provided.
    – Sally Hunston, Business Manager, The Iffley Academy
  • From start to finish the whole procurement process was smooth and easy. All I had to do was provide current documents and then sit and wait for the results, which have given us a saving. We will definitely use Minerva again. Thank you very much.
    – Liz Halliwell, School Business Manager, Stroud High School
  • The process was very thorough and professional and saved me an immense amount of time and additional workload.
    – Jo Morsman, Business Manager, Hillside Primary School
  • Process couldn't have been easier and very happy with the outcome. Although there weren't a lot of savings to be had moving to a rolling 12 month contract is very beneficial and still cheaper than what we were paying before - thanks Minerva!
    – Jo Pedley, School Business Manager, St. Michael's Easthampstead Primary School
