TISonline Procurement

This TISonline information stream explains the issues that financial and service managers need to consider to ensure that service and budgetary responsibilities are managed properly. It seeks to encourage a corporate approach to the management of public sector bodies’ purchasing processes, assisting all those involved in the procurement of goods, works and services.

TISonline Procurement is designed to encourage senior decision-makers to appreciate the significance of procurement in their organisations and ensure that its contribution and performance is assessed. It also highlights where any major differences occur in specific services or geographic areas within or across the public sector, and provides information on where to get further advice. It also includes information on contract management.

In light of the increasingly tight financial framework emphasising efficiency and continuous improvement within which public service organisations are expected to work, this information stream promotes the adoption of corporate procurement strategies and robust practices to achieve best whole-life value for money in the most sustainable and effective manner.

Coverage includes:

  • Public Contracts Regulations 2015
  • contract and relationship management
  • commissioning
  • planning
  • policy and governance.
