Flexible Purchasing Contracts

CUB have managed flexible purchasing contracts since 2001. Learn about how we can help your organisation to benefit from this approach.

What is a flexible purchasing contract?

A flexible purchasing contract allows you to spread the risk of purchasing energy in a number of different ways. For example, with a fixed-price energy contract (link to fixed-price energy supply contract page), you agree to fix all the wholesale energy in one transaction. However, a flexible purchasing contract spreads the risk over multiple transactions, typically achieving a lower overall cost.

How can CUB help me find the most suitable fixed-price energy supply contract?

Our small team of experts (9 full-time team members) has 109 years of experience in the energy industry. We use this knowledge to provide impartial and helpful advice on the most appropriate contract to suit your needs, as many different flexible purchasing contract types are available – see the article for more info (link to understanding flexible purchasing article). In addition, we work with over twenty energy suppliers to ensure your business receives the most competitive deal possible.

What is the process?

  1. CUB obtains your authority to conduct a tender and get the required information.
  2. We work with you to establish your ideal contract type, payment terms and duration.
  3. We request prices from over twenty energy suppliers; these are analysed and presented to you.
  4. Contract agreed with supplier for the chosen duration, and CUB manages the onboarding to the new supplier.

You now have a new supply contract and CUB as your Energy Partner, with a named account manager assigned to you. – we will deal with any issues throughout the life of the contract, and we will discuss any additional services that may benefit you.

How does CUB get paid?

CUB typically work on a commission structure whereby we include our fee in the price of any contract we offer you, so you do not incur any upfront cost for our services; however, we are happy to agree on an alternative fee structure with you if preferred. Just ask one of our helpful team members.
