Collaborative Procurement Strategy

A professional and effective procurement function is essential to demonstrate Value for Money for the public purse and maximise use of resources available to the frontline. The climate of ever reducing resources demands a strategic and medium term perspective on procurement with standardisation, aggregation commitment and collaboration as key enablers in driving out greater value from goods and services consumed in the delivery of policing services. This procurement strategy will ensure that procurement activities are aligned to the corporate objectives of the three Southern Wales forces and support the delivery of the objectives of the Corporations Sole in Gwent, Dyfed and South Wales Police.
