Case Study - ESOS Compliance auction

UK's leading animal charity saves 55% on ESOS cost

UK's leading animal charity saves 55% on ESOS cost


Our client, the UK's leading animal welfare charity, rescues, rehabilitates and rehomes hundreds of thousands of animals each year in England and Wales. They received quotations from a variety of ESOS Compliance Providers, and the proposed ESOS Compliance methodology, contract terms, completion times, and costs from each provider were all very different. The objective was to find the right quality product, in the right quantity, at the right time, and the right price from the right source.

The Process:

We assisted our client in evaluating ESOS Compliance responses from providers through the following steps:

Developed an auction weighting questionnaire based on our client's detailed specification and timescale.

Specified a weighting score for each of our client's requirements.

Specified a minimum credit rating score for ESOS Compliance providers.

Published the ESOS Compliance tender.

Invited ESOS service providers to respond via our Auction platform.

Gave ESOS providers a fair and equal opportunity to reply.

Gave equal time for each supplier to submit their response.


Twelve quality ESOS Compliance providers participated in the ESOS Compliance auction.

It was easy to evaluate responses using auction weighting.

A ranking order of suppliers was established using auction weighting methodology.

Auction Weighting evaluated price, technical merit, quality, compatibility, use of resources, delivery time, service, and sustainability.

The top three ranked suppliers were invited to a face-to-face meeting with our client.


The weighted auction process facilitated instant evaluation and ranking of supplier responses.

Suppliers were credit checked to ensure they were financially sound.

Ranking of offers was instantaneous , transparent, and visible to all auction participants.

Instantaneous evaluation saved the procurement team the equivalent of 20 days.

Time saved contributed to efficiency and productivity of our client.

Final choice of supplier from the top 3 was left to our client after face-to-face meetings.

The process was fair and transparent.

Auction bids and offers made were fully auditable.

Our client saved 55% on ESOS compliance costs, equivalent to around £9,000.

This saving released extra funding was available for core charitable activities.

This funding was also available to implement ESOS energy efficiency measures.
