National Procurement Strategy

This site brings together guidance documents, case study examples of good practice and a host of other resources to enable local government to share with and learn from each other, as well as check their progress against the National Procurement Strategy.

Following regional consultation we are now pleased to be able to launch the consultation of our National Procurement Strategy for 2018. 

We would love to hear your views on:

  • The structure of the strategy – now presented as a ‘maturity index’ format following the response to our diagnostic exercise in 2017
  • The level of ambition – can we achieve what we have set out to achieve over the next four years? Are we being ambitious enough?
  • The themes and enablers – do they cover what is important? Have we missed anything?
  • Would you be prepared to share your councils’ results of the maturity index on a reciprocal basis with other councils who have also submitted their scores?
  • Any other comments.

Please respond to productivity@local.gov.uk by 4 May 2018.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Local Government Procurement Showcase presentations

We held an event on 25 September 2017 in which we showcased the LGA’s work on procurement and discussed what might be included in a new national procurement strategy for 2018.

The slides and resources are available here:
