Public Sector Cost Reduction: Driving Out Substantial & Sustainable Efficiencies

Public Sector Procurement Transformation

The pain of deficit reduction is now only too evident. At a time of austerity every £ to be invested in the British economy calls for a £ saved. Every part of the public sector needs to have an immediate and a longer term focus on cost reduction. 15% procurement savings by 2015 should be the minimum goal. This would unlock a total of £37bn of savings.

That quantum of savings needs to come from better procurement and the application of systematic best practice across price, cost and commercial structures. This framework covers immediate fast gains as well as more sophisticated, longer term actions.
