Delivering a highly complex and strategic procurement project brings with it unique challenges. Dedicating sufficient time to planning and preparation and adopting robust approaches from a project’s inception, puts you in control and ensures costs and risks can be mitigated, whilst maximising value for money.
Engaging with the market early is of great value to stakeholders who are establishing project requirements and helps you identify the routes to market that are most likely to result in a value for money acquisition.
Drawing on our experience of working with public sector procurement project teams since 2001, we’ll share some of our learnings and the best practice approaches being adopted across MOD.
