Emergency Services Procurement
The management of procurement is an important factor contributing to the efficient operation of emergency service organisations. This includes bought-in goods and services to support the delivery of frontline activities and provide the necessary pre-requisites for staff and managers to do their jobs effectively. However, many must extend their vision from managing key categories to support strategic objectives and the developing requirements of public procurement reform.
PROACTIS solutions enable emergency service organisations to constantly seek value for money and efficiency improvements through processes that comply with the relevant legislation and good practice. This enables Procurement teams to achieve economies of scale, process efficiencies and seek opportunities to encompass areas that have not received the degree of savings and contract coverage previously.
Emergency services customers include: West Yorkshire Police, Hampshire Police, Avon Fire & Rescue, and South Yorkshire Fire & Rescue.
