Step 3: Add as much (or little!) info as you like

With options to upload any files or specification documents you think might be useful, suggest any suppliers that you would particularly like to hear from, ask questions to be answered alongside your quotes, and select criteria you'll later judge proposals against, you’ll know you’re getting quotes tailor-made for your school and your budget. We’ll only connect you with experienced suppliers with a proven track record of working with schools.
