The LGA has previously worked with the Audit Commission to look at the arrangements a number of different councils (including districts, counties and unitaries) have in place to manage their contracts more effectively and the benefits they have gained as a result.
A report and case studies on this work can be found below.

This presentation includes an audio commentary. To hear it, you will need to view as a slideshow.
The presentation was given by Mark Wardman at the Society of Procurement Officers conference on 11 November 2013 in London. It is based on the report ‘Savings from contract management', published by the LGA, which was launched at this conference.
Mark Wardman and Emma MacLeod from the Audit Commission carried out the bulk of the research and analysis for this project. Tina Holland and Siobhan Coughlan at the LGA managed and oversaw the project. Tina Holland and Mark Wardman's contact details are given at the end of this presentation.
