Public Sector Procurement Transformation

Six Pillars of Procurement Transformation

Transformation requires a broad coalition of top politicians, public sector leaders, key stakeholders and the most senior commercial, programme, procurement and commissioning directors. It calls for their active support and real commitment to change ways of working. This is a high priority for central and local government, the NHS, Defence and PFI.

The majority of third party spend is controlled not by procurement professionals but by senior budget holders and those in charge of service delivery. They are the pivotal leaders who need to be accountable for procurement transformation, and fully supportive of it.
