The report contains details of the main findings from the 2018 diagnostic assessment, examples of good practice whilst identifying some of the key areas for improvement for 2019/20.
Each council taking part in the assessment defined what mattered most to them and decided the level of attainment to which it wanted to aspire but one of the key messages, across the sector, was that contract and relationship management and social value are both key areas where attention needs to be focused. The National Advisory Group for Procurement will be looking at ways in which it can help channel resources as a means of helping councils to seek improvement in these areas.
