The Tenet On-Demand team have had a very busy year working with education customers around the country leading on the completion of tenders across a wide range of goods and services. One very popular service is outsourced catering services tender support. Like toilet rolls and fuel, Tenet’s team of catering specialists are in high demand! To ensure we can maintain a high quality of service and meet the demand from the education sector, a new member of the team has been appointed. 

Tenet are very pleased to welcome Mary Bee to the team, who joined us on the 4th of October. For clarity, we have not appointed Mary Berry into our catering team (now that would have been a marketing story to print), we think we’ve gone one better and appointed Mary Bee. Mary joins the team with a vast amount of catering service knowledge having previously worked for a nationwide provider of catering services to the education sector. Mary’s level of knowledge on education catering services is unquestionable and we look forward to introducing Mary to customers soon. 

“I am absolutely thrilled to be part of the Tenet On-Demand team and cannot wait to work with our customers in getting them the best deal possible.” Mary Bee – Tenet Catering Specialist. 

Many education establishments took the decision to not tender their catering services during the pandemic. If your organisation needs procurement support to re-tender or what to explore an outsourced service, please contact Craig Lockley on [email protected] or 07535 650629 for a no-obligation discussion.  

Funding has been provided granted by CPL Group to make professional procurement services more accessible to the education sector. Tenet can access available funding to support on tenders using the CPC Outsourced Catering Services framework. The CPC Outsourced Catering Services framework is approved by the Department for Education (DfE). The Schools Commercial Team within DfE reviews a range of available frameworks. These frameworks are assessed for compliance with procurement regulations, ease of use, suitability, and value for money. CPC are pleased to have passed the scrutiny of the DfE.
