Public sector procurement

Feb 17, 2014

At Thornton & Lowe, our specialist bid management team keep an eye on what is happening on the "other side of the fence" in the procurement world. In the last 1 months we have been seeing a lot of press on the focus on improving public sector procurement. We've just been reading an interesting article highlighting an example of how a council in Scotland has really improved over the last few years. Much of the focus for any council be on cost savings; a focus shared by everyone. To achieve the savings, council's need to really tighten up their procurement exercises and strategies - which ultimately affect the seller. This will mean, ideally, a much more accessible and transparent tender process. We also expect thresholds to be reviewed and amended to provide tighter control on spending, which will, hopefully, mean more tender opportunities. To read the article, click here.
