Utilitas can help to ease your procurement frustrations

We understand that in the Education sector Bursars and Finance Managers are often stretched. The pressure of time, and budgetary restrictions can often mean that you are not able to dedicate as much resource as you would like to manage your procurement. That’s where we come in.

Our aim is not just to save you time and money, but to really add value. Whether you need help with tendering and procurement, data analysis that aids your budgeting and financial management, or assistance in undertaking a large infrastructure project, we can assist you.
