The Supply Cross River 2 (SXR2) project finished in March 2015. This project has been a huge success, with a number of targets being overachieved.
SXR2 was an initiative developed by Cross River Partnership, which opened up supply chain and procurement opportunities to small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) in central London. It promoted supplier diversity and sustainable procurement to buyers, further stimulating local economic growth. Through a combination of business support activities, SXR2 helped local SMEs across all sectors increase their tendering compliance, improve their competitiveness through skills development and become procurement ready and fit to win.
SXR2 also worked with buyer organisations, highlighting the benefits of local and sustainable procurement and sourcing and brokering contract opportunities to SMEs. The project was co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) through the London’s ERDF Programme.
