Government Must Look to Procurement to Avoid Frontline Cuts

Procurement specialist xynergie has called for Government savings announced in the Spending Review [Oct 20th 2010] to be achieved through improving procurement efficiencies, rather than by cutting frontline services.

xynergie chief executive Tony Lockwood said: -Government procurement inefficiencies were highlighted in Philip Green’s Efficiency Review. While the chancellor has said it will make savings by improving efficiency as well as making cuts, we are yet to see how they will achieve this. Technologies and methodologies are available and in-use in the private sector that completely rule out the levels of inefficiency shown in the Philip Green report.

-In the way it handles procurement, the Government needs to get up to speed with the private sector. It must re-engineer its procurement processes and make savings with backroom efficiency, not frontline cuts.”
