“ICPS team help transform procurement culture in public sector organisation whilst sustaining local value in the process!"
Gwynedd Council, in Wales, have been utilising ICPS expertise to help transform their approach to procurement. Rather than service departments buying on a departmental basis, a new organisational-wide approach to procurement will be adopted. The savings emanating from this Category Management based approach to procurement, will be reallocated to front-line services in order to help sustain quality services to citizens despite the era of austerity.
ICPS (Professor Dermot Cahill, Ceri Evans, Gary Clifford, Dr. Ama Eyo, Stephen Clear & Becky Hughes) have played a pivotal role informing Gwynedd Council staff members about the principles of Category Management, whilst at the same time running focus groups with staff to ensure that the Category Management based approach adopted is fit for purpose and most importantly, can feasibly be implemented!
