Procurement model for IT across London set to get national roll-out

In an effort to tackle local government budget cuts there will be a national roll-out of a successfully trialled procurement model for IT across London boroughs.

Better pricing transparency across local authorities and sharing data will be the primary drivers behind the roll out. Delegates at the Procurex South conference were informed of this.

Terry Brewer, divisional director commercial, contracts and procurement at the London Borough of Harrow, added: “We’re imminently about to launch an ICT category strategy so that we can issue that to procurement professionals and CIOs up and down the country as a guide.”
