Following our conversion to Academy Status in 2011 we decided to stay with our Local Authority energy contracts, right up until the point where they wrote to me advising that they were leaving their current Public Buying Framework and moving to another one. At this point I received information about Cost Advice and decided to give them a call to see what they could offer us – I have never looked back. I do not have to worry about whether I can procure energy at the best price or have to spend vast amounts of time liasing with energy companies regarding quotes. Cost Advice Services do all of the leg work in obtaining best price, they collate all of the price information into a comprehensive, easy-to-read format, send it to me and then phone me to discuss and agree strategy. We became a MAT in 2013 and Cost Advice Services also now provide their service to our small primary Academy. Overall I am very impressed with their service and can recommend them highly to any busy School Business/Facilities Manager who is looking to get the best energy prices in the most efficient way.
