3 County Regional Procurement Project
Meeting: 15/07/2014 - Cabinet (Item 31)
As detailed in the recommendations.
The Chief Executive introduced the report and the business case for the 3 County Procurement Project between Flintshire, Denbighshire and Gwynedd County Councils.
The business case had been agreed by the project board and by Cabinets at Denbighshire and Gwynedd and demonstrated how a category management approach to procurement implemented across 3 Councils could realise major procurement improvements and savings for each Council. This was supported by a procurement support service which was already in place for Flintshire and Denbighshire.
The remaining Councils in the region had the option to enter the consortium at a later date.
(a) That the final business case for the 3 County Procurement Project be endorsed and the project to move to implementation stage; and
(b) That regular progress reports be submitted to Cabinet, the next being in the autumn.
