Costs and Sectors : Schools and Colleges

Auditel in the Schools and Colleges sector

When it comes to cost management for schools and colleges, few bursars or FDs have the time or in-house resources to do their homework properly.

Rising Costs

Rising costs set against shrinking budgets highlight the need to make every penny count, yet many are missing out on opportunities to make valuable savings and instead, continue to pay far too much for essential services such as energy, telecoms, catering, waste management and school supplies.

Researching and continually monitoring supplier markets is a laborious task. Finding cheaper prices may be easy, but choosing a supplier who will both meet your financial needs and offer consistently high levels of service now and into the future requires specialist knowledge and expertise.

Working with Auditel

Over the last twenty years Auditel’s independent cost management specialists have helped schools and colleges in the UK and Ireland to make better, more informed procurement decisions, saving them money year after year and freeing up funds that can be better spent on improvements to the school facilities and pupil experience.
