Markets and Collaborative Procurement

Government currently spends around £220bn on goods and services - that’s about £1 in every £4 spent in total by the Exchequer. It’s our aim to ensure that Government - both central Whitehall departments and the wider public sector - maximises the value it achieves from this spend through a variety of approaches: championing and facilitating collaboration across the major areas of third party spend; making the procurement process more efficient through the use of frameworks and e-procurement tools; reducing the negative environmental impact of goods and services purchased and working with suppliers to improve their sustainability performance;  improving spend data to assist better decision making, and engaging with Government’s strategic suppliers to foster greater innovation and value within the supply chain.
