We are pleased to announce the launch of your new look GeM search following a pilot with The University of Kent. 

Your new look GeM homepage offers you a more intuitive way to find approved suppliers and products where Agreement, Lot and Contract Information will be grouped by commodity group.

This enables you to get the data you need simply and quickly, improving your GeM experience.  The system now has only a single search box allowing you to filter results to “contracted suppliers” or “contracted products”.

Laurence Ranger, purchasing assistant at The University of Kent, said the new design makes 'finding relevant information and documents quicker and easier, making the site far more accessible for other members of staff that are not so accustomed to using it [GeM].'
