nnal Nayyar- Councils must get better value from billions spent on procurementCollaboration

The Select Committee stated :

£1.8 billion a year of additional savings could be made if councils improved their collaboration. The LGA should produce best practice guidance on the most effective means of joining up procurement to deliver savings [paragraph 33].  Clive Betts MP said:

“Significant additional savings can be made if collaboration on procurement between authorities becomes the default for certain purchases.

The LGA must take the lead and produce guidance on how councils can voluntarily join together to make savings in their procurement. Compulsorily centralising procurement operation would not only produce practical difficulties but also severely limit the flexibility of councils to deliver local objectives.”
