Procurement Restructure

12/01/2024 - Procurement Restructure

Recommendations approved


Reasons for recommendation

There is a need to increase the capacity of the Procurement team. The team is struggling at times to meet its business-as-usual requirements. Further – for the reasons out lined in the report – there is a desire for the team to adopt a more transformational approach. The proposals should be seen as an invest to save option. It is expected that a Procurement team that is enabled to take a more strategic pro active view should be able to generate substantial savings for both councils.
