BSIA launches end user procurement survey

The British Security Industry Association (BSIA) – the trade body representing the UK’s private security industry – is researching the procurement attitudes of end users.

The BSIA is seeking to understand the factors which influence security procurement and investment through an online survey launched this week. The survey – which is open to all individuals involved in the procurement and management of security products and services – aims to provide the BSIA and its members with a better understanding of the needs of end users. 

James Kelly, Chief Executive of the BSIA, comments: “This survey will help the security industry to identify the factors that influence the procurement of security products and services. By gaining an understanding of our industry’s clients and their security needs, we can ensure a closer relationship between buyers and suppliers throughout the procurement, implementation and maintenance of security products and services.
