Procurement

A club providing benchmarking on procurement, one of the greatest challenges facing the public sector – authorities spend huge amounts of money with a wide range of suppliers, and providing value for money and where possible achieving savings are of paramount importance in the climate of authorities’ reducing budgets.

The questionnaire has been developed by a pilot group of practitioners from across the public sector. 

The exercise supports the procurement function in two ways:

  1. It helps authorities to share data on a wide range of procurement topics and to network with colleagues in other authorities.
  2. A key question examines where authorities were successful in making savings – providing an excellent resource for authorities to identify which areas are most worth investing procurement resource in.
