Part 5: Applying the Value Levers

  • Procurement is not just about letting contracts quickly and efficiently, or tactically manipulating competition.

  • Competition is a driver for innovation within markets, but equally collaboration is required across specialties.

  • Introduce a challenge to unlock savings of that quantum and start to fill the black hole.

  • Ensure price transparency;  push for value beyond aggregation;  apply the latest procurement toolkits.

  • Claw back PFI benefits;  buy back contracts;  unpick unitary charges on services;  cut excessive profits.
