Understanding what we do.
What is Spend Network?
Spend Network provides insight and analysis for public sector spending. We work with public procurement and finance data to help suppliers and government to forge lasting partnerships.
What data does SN gather?
We gather the spending data published by over 300 different public sector bodies, think of it as the bank statements of Government. We have collected this data since 2011 for most bodies.
How does SN process the data?
Firstly we gather and standardise the data so that it can be analysed together, then we link the data to buyer and company records before categorising it to a common standard.
How do you categorise the data?
We categorise the data using a combination of human intelligence and machine learning algorithms. So we use over 80m lines of data to intelligently align each transaction to the UNSPSC standard.
