This strategy builds on councils’ achievements under the National Procurement Strategy for Local Government in England 2014 – the first strategy developed by and for English councils.
In Spring 2017 councils assessed their own progress under the National Procurement Strategy for Local Government in England 2014. Results are summarised in National Procurement Strategy 2014: The story so far. Councils reported good progress on the implementation of electronic procurement and on the use of the flexibilities provided by the new EU procurement rules, for example. In terms of capability, as might be expected, larger councils reported having the most commercial expertise at their disposal while many district councils were sharing services.
