About Us

Our History

KCS Procurement Services is a fast-growing provider with a wide range of fully-compliant, national frameworks that are formulated according to Public Contract Regulations 2015. We are on this mission as a trading function of the Commercial Services Group, which is a wholly-owned business unit of Kent County Council.

Additionally, we provide a purchasing, warehousing and distribution service to a wide-ranging customer base, both locally in Kent, as well as nationwide.

Commercial Services Group, which is now also operating internationally, is the largest trading organisation of its kind in Europe. Established in 1902 as an education stores department for Kent County Council, now transformed to offer a constantly evolving range of products and services to the public sector organisations such as central and local government, education, healthcare and emergency services.

The rapid growth of the whole group and a turnover in excess of £600 million have an effect on expanding teams with a wide range of specialists on a mission to simplify procurement and make it financial and time-efficient for you.

Our Mission

We deliver innovative transformation through our frameworks and services offering a wide range of solutions to help organisations run smarter, not harder. We do this through the creation and management of public sector frameworks across 12 categories. 

Our mission is to always provide:

  • Choice: multiple frameworks working in partnership with global, national and local suppliers.
  • Direct Award: a hassle-free procurement route to get the solution you need.
