DRAFT National Procurement Strategy 2018

DRAFT National Procurement Strategy Toolkit

This DRAFT strategy is based on the Local Government Associations 'National Procurement Strategy 2018' and has been streamlined based on learning from their previous strategy. It focuses on three key themes which the Fire Commercial Transformation Programme believe are also appropriate for our sector; 

  • Leadership
  • Commercial Practice
  • Delivering Local Benefits 

The themes are further broken down into a number of ‘Key Areas’. The themes are presented as maturity models to make objective setting and measurement easier. A toolkit has been developed to accompany this strategy. Its purpose is to help Fire and Rescue Services identify their current maturity in relation to these Themes, set local goals and assess their progress.   

The review period will end on the 31st January 2019. Please provide any feedback on the strategy by then and we would also be grateful if you could complete the ‘Toolkit’ on behalf of your FRS by this date. The ‘Toolkit’ should take a team (if you have one) approximately 60 to 90mins to complete allowing for some discussion whilst completing it.  Please provide feedback on the strategy and your completed 'Toolkit' for your FRS by the 31st January 2019 to lmalton@dsfire.gov.uk.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Luke Malton (lmalton@dsfire.gov.uk).
