Brexit positioning statement – October 2019

Business people figurines shaking hands on map of Europe

The situation around Brexit remains fluid. The EU has agreed to a ‘flextension’ – extending the deadline for the UK’s exit from the EU to 31st January, but with an option for ‘exit day’ to be brought forward if a deal is ratified before then. However, the upcoming UK general election could mean that the terms of discussion change once again.

Against this dynamic background, we have today published an update on BiP Solutions’ position in relation to Brexit and what it means for our customers in the run-up to ‘exit day’ and beyond, in the various possible iterations of the UK’s departure from the EU.

Procurex Wales: press release, 06.08.2019

Logo for Procurex Wales

This year’s Procurex Wales event, originally scheduled to be held at the Motorpoint Arena Cardiff on 7 November 2019, will now take place on 18 March 2020.

The Welsh Government made this decision to allow them to dedicate the required focus and resources to the event, given the original date’s proximity to Brexit on 31 October. The rescheduled date for Procurex Wales will ensure that the event is a success and allow maximum participation from the buyer and supplier community across Wales.

For full details please read BiP Solutions’ and the Welsh Government’s joint press release.

New report – Transforming Infrastructure: Building Britain’s Future

BiP Solutions is pleased to announce the launch of its new market report - Transforming Infrastructure: building Britain’s future,

BiP Solutions is pleased to announce the launch of its new market report – Transforming Infrastructure: Building Britain’s Future, a must-read report for those working or looking to work in the infrastructure marketplace.

The infrastructure sector provides a wealth of opportunities for businesses in the know, with key supply chains currently being built up for the megaprojects scheduled to be built in Britain over the next decade. This report shows where those opportunities will become available so you can plan how to build your business strategy.

This new market report from BiP highlights the latest trends and opportunities within the sector, and follows the hugely successful UK Infrastructure Show (UKIS) hosted by BiP at the NEC in April. The show, held in conjunction with Procurex – the UK’s premier public procurement event – saw 1400 delegates enjoying over 30 free training sessions, five leading industry figures speaking in the Keynote Arena, plus network and collaboration zones and a wealth of exhibition stands.

Talking points from the show, together with results from the survey conducted by our media partner, Construction Online, into the infrastructure marketplace, have inspired deeper research into the market, to help identify opportunities for buyers and suppliers within the sector. This has resulted in our new market report, which identifies these trends.

Infrastructure has been one of the better performers for the construction industry throughout this unsettled political and economic period with the National Infrastructure Pipeline inspiring confidence in the sector that is perhaps lacking elsewhere.

The National Infrastructure Pipeline evidenced a buoyant infrastructure sector over the next decade, confirming over 700 projects which will see over £600bn worth of investment in the UK. The National Infrastructure Commission produced its own analysis of the figures and statements and responded with an assessment of how the pipeline will be delivered.

This new report considers both the pipeline and assessment and how such huge transformation can be achieved in the timescales required. As well as a copy of the key findings from Construction Online’s Infrastructure Survey, the report includes an in-depth review of UKIS 2019 and the discussions that took place.

Download the full report now to find out how BiP Solutions can help you to access the huge opportunities within this £600bn sector.

Health Online also allows healthcare professionals and respected commercial suppliers to share news, trade ideas and build connections.

For healthcare professionals, Health Online provides a platform for exposure among your peers, by offering the possibility of uploading your own features and examples of best practice, as well as enabling you to contribute to discussions created by others.

Sam Gilding, Director of Media & Marketing Solutions, said:

BiP Solutions launches new report examining the key themes to emerge in defence

BiP Solutions launches new report examining the key themes to emerge in defence procurement

Today, BiP Solutions is pleased to launch Procurement in Defence: Key Themes and Trends 2019.  The market report examines defence opportunities, the MOD’s efforts to improve industrial engagement, the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO)’s commercial transformation and the drive for innovation across the sector. The report follows on the heels of Defence Procurement, Research, Technology & Exportability (DPRTE) 2019, which took place at the end of March.

The event, held across a single day, drew a record attendance as over 1500 visitors made their way to Farnborough to engage within a marketplace valued at over £20 billion annually.

From DPRTE 2019, it was clear that the opportunities available in the defence marketplace are significant and that improving engagement with the supply chain and the drive for innovation would continue to be key themes for the defence industry.

This report considers defence opportunities, examines the key themes to emerge from the event and features insights from Jim Carter, Commercial Director, Supply Chain, MOD; Jacqui Rock, Commercial Director, Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) and Dr Lucy Mason, Head of the Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA).

Mr Carter said of the MOD’s plans to improve supplier engagement:

The MOD is the largest procurement organisation in central government. We manage some of the most complex and technologically advanced requirements in the world.

One of our key messages is that we are going to need a deeper collaboration with our supply chain and be ever more demanding.

The report also provides the opportunity to read an in-depth review of DPRTE 2019 including a look at highlights from the Keynote Arena, the five Knowledge Transfer Zones and seven Networking & Collaboration Zones.

BiP Solutions launches second report in series exploring local government procurement

New market report considers local government trends, challenges and opportunities in a digital world

Download your exclusive copy of the report here.

Today, BiP Solutions is pleased to launch the second in our series of reports focusing on the changing landscape of public sector procurement. Our latest report considers the impact of this changing landscape for local government in an ever-evolving digital world.

The publishing of the Government’s Transformation Strategy effectively kickstarted the journey of digital transformation for Government with many local authorities taking advantage of the components available to them through GOV.UK.

In fact, across local government today, digital transformation is playing a significant role in meeting the needs and expectations of citizens. In light of this, our report considers the key digital trends and innovative approaches transforming service delivery for citizens. It also considers current spend within local government, with a particular focus on IT/Digital spend, and also draws on findings from recent research conducted by our colleagues at iGov Survey to highlight the specific procurement challenges and opportunities facing local government and the wider public sector.

Eddie Regan, PASS Training Consultant at BiP Solutions, said of this research:

The timing of the latest iGov Survey is quite appropriate, given the current uncertainty about Brexit and the continual questions about what impact it may or may not have on public procurement.

Early engagement, innovation and emerging new technologies all have a massive role to play in the future direction of public procurement. The public sector cannot afford to fall behind and this research highlights that whilst the sector is moving in the right direction, more does need to be done to upskill procurement teams and develop effective supplier relationships that deliver true value for all involvement in the procurement process, including and not forgetting, service users.’

Our report also reflects on our recent Procurex Events in Wales and Scotland and considers key ways take to get ahead if you are looking to tap into the local government marketplace, regardless of your prior experience of procurement.

BiP Solutions launches new report series exploring changing shape of public sector procurement

NHS-Procurement-Report

New market report considers healthcare trends, challenges and opportunities in a digital world

Today, BiP Solutions is pleased to launch the first of a series of reports, which will focus on the changing landscape of public sector procurement. The inaugural report considers the impact of this changing landscape for the NHS and wider healthcare organisations in an ever-evolving digital world.

Autumn Budget pledges to significantly invest in improving frontline services were widely welcomed by Healthcare leaders as the NHS continues to grapple with challenges ranging from managing the needs of an ageing population through to delivering services fit for 21st century users. And, for the latter, digital transformation has a crucial part to play.

In light of this, our report considers the digital trends and innovative approaches playing a significant role in today’s NHS in boosting efficiencies and crucially saving lives. It considers current spend within the NHS and also draws on findings from recent research conducted by our colleagues at iGov Survey to highlight the specific procurement challenges and opportunities facing the NHS.

Professor Duncan Eaton, Executive Advisor, All-Party Parliamentary Health Group and Chair of P4H England, said of this research:

‘This latest iGov survey has been carried out at a very opportune time. NHS procurement in England is at a major crossroads in its development, particularly given the changing structure at national level. Alongside the organisational changes, eSourcing and supply chain processes are gaining greater prominence. For example, the Scan 4Safety programme – responsible for enabling the delivery of better patient care, improved client productivity and supply chain efficiency – is now developing rapidly and is already having a notable impact on supply chain efficiency and patient safety.’

There is also the opportunity to reflect back on our flagship healthcare event, P4H England, and talk about some of the solutions we offer to support both healthcare buyers and suppliers in their procurement journey.
