Understanding Public Sector Procurement

Public sector procurement is the process by which public sector bodies buy goods, services, and works from external suppliers.

Public sector procurement encompasses a wide range of activities, including sourcing suppliers, soliciting bids or proposals, evaluating offers, negotiating public contract opportunities, and managing supplier relationships.

The primary objectives of public sector procurement are to obtain the goods and services needed to fulfil the mission and objectives of the public sector organisation while also achieving value for money and promoting economic development.

Public sector procurement plays a critical role in delivering public services, infrastructure projects, and other UK government initiatives.

Key stakeholders involved in public sector procurement may include government agencies, public sector organisations, suppliers, contractors, and taxpayers.

Effective public sector procurement requires collaboration and coordination among these stakeholders to ensure that procurement processes are efficient, transparent, and compliant with regulations.

Public sector procurement is essential for ensuring that government and public sector organisations can effectively deliver services and infrastructure to the public cost-effectively and transparently.

    Our team stays up-to-date with changes in legislation and best practices, reassuring our clients that their procurement processes are legally robust.

  6. Performance Monitoring

    We help public sector organisations monitor the performance of their procurement activities to identify areas for improvement and to drive continuous improvement.

    We monitor performance by looking at three critical categories: time, cost, and quality. This approach enables us to oversee and enhance our operations throughout two pivotal phases of construction - Pre-Construction and Live Construction.

    During the pre-construction phase, we monitor KPIs on safety management, time management, and cost management, with a significant emphasis on ensuring sustainability and tracking social value. This foundational phase is crucial for setting the stage for a smooth and efficient construction process.

    As we transition into the live construction phase, the scope of our monitoring expands to include not only the core aspects of safety, time, and cost management but also the equitable payment of suppliers and the continuous commitment to sustainability.
