Current Focus

The group is currently focussing on the blockers to procuring for value and potential ways to overcome these.  As a cross supply chain group the views and perspectives of all those involved in procurement is critical to ensure a better picture of where value comes from.

In 2020 the group will be looking at how the considerable body of evidence Constructing Excellence holds on new models of procurement and collaborative procurement can be targeted at key decision makers and project sponsors.  The group will be creating a targeted campaign to inspire, enable and support behavioural change in the procurement process.
