Business Information for Local and Central Government


The UK public sector represents the single largest market in the UK Are you in the business for your share of this vast market?

This year, government spending will reach £690 billion - 46 per cent of projected GDP Reform in local and central government continues to create opportunities. With over 60 million people now living in the UK, the government will spend an incredible £690 billion on servicing their needs.

Despite these spending increases, the constant development of business processes, people skills and technology is enabling the public sector to deliver on its promise of efficiency gains. The procurement role in government has been central to this.

n Local Government spending will increase to an estimated £188bn as decision making responsibilities for education, security and transport are devolved. Three year settlements now give local authorities the freedom to plan ahead and provide more flexible resources on housing, transport schemes and support to businesses.

Quality, sustainability and value for money are now scrutinised, as procurement hubs and buying consortia are using their collective spending power to secure better, longer term deals. This, in turn, will pass on economies of scale to suppliers and can allow them to plan for sustained growth. Through these successful partnerships, it has been demonstrated that the private sector can continue to offer better value for money in many areas of service provision.

n £74 billion is currently spent on outsourced services with organisations in the private sector, and over the next four years, estimates suggest that this market will reach over £100bn - over 6 per cent of UK GDP. n Increases in central and local government spending on security and environmental initiatives provide more opportunities for the private sector to share its expertise and create circular economies, and more opportunities for citizens to get directly involved in managing and shaping how local services are delivered.

Government Business magazine, and its accompanying website at, helps government specifiers and buyers find out about the latest goods and services, the latest business methods and the latest procurement practices that combine to help deliver efficiency gains while better serving citizens and increasing opportunities for all.

GB assists those whose function is to source goods and services on behalf of the public sector. With a total circulation of 10,345, it is the leading monthly magazine for public sector buyers as it responds rapidly to changes in government policy. This is reflected in content that is highly relevant and up-to-date. Unlike more niche oriented publishers, Government Business reaches the complete decision making team - chief executives, program managers, heads of department and procurement personnel. Magazines are distributed on a courtesy basis by name and designation, which allows specific targetting dependent of the exact content of each issue. This policy ensures that our advertisers are seen in the right place at the right time by the right people. We also publish a number of supplements and special publications that are distributed along with Government Business, and to specially selected readers. This helps to balance reader demand for quality led editorial whilst offering targeted advertising platforms for businesses. Government Business also covers exhibitions, conferences and events that are of particular interest to public sector buyers. Your business presence at this event can be enhanced by inclusion in our previews, which are distributed prior to the event and available free of charge to visitors. As local authorities and central government departments are also responsible for organising many seminars, public events, conferences etc., the magazine and website both contain regular features on destinations and venues in the UK.

Companies that have successfully and regularly used the GB brand include: n Toshiba Tec n Assaabloy n Eurovia n Fortnum & Mason n OKI n Shell Petrol n British Psychological Society n Rezidor Hotel Group n Visit Scotland n Siemens n Consilium

Target your market with the Government Business Database The GB database contains approximately 24,500 names, job titles, organisation names, postal addresses and contact details of key department heads within the Public Sector. This information forms the base from which Government Business is distributed and is updated regularly.

The job titles and responsibilities range from the Chief Executive and Finance Director, through IT Managers, Heads of Personnel and Human Resources, Facilities Managers, Procurement Managers/Officers, Marketing Managers, Health and Safety Officers, Heads of Environmental Waste and Recycling, Telecommunications Managers, Architects, Specifiers and many more. The organisations within which they work include Central Government and Local Authorities through to Executive Agencies (MOD, Government Procurement Services, Environment Agency, Highways Agency etc.), the Privatised Utilities, Emergency Services and top Housing Associations. The database has been used by many private and public sector organisations to target potential buyers using direct mail and telemarketing. As most successful advertising campaigns adopt a mixed media approach, combined with a series of advertisements in Government Business, and internet exposure on, the GB database allows organisations to use any mixture of methods they choose to reach their audience.
