The Changing Face of Procurement in 2021 – Keeping you informed

Back in December, the Government published their Transforming Public Procurement Green Paper, with the goal of speeding up and simplifying procurement processes, placing value for money at their heart and enabling innovation in public service delivery. But what does this mean for UK buyers and suppliers and what challenges lie ahead in the coming months?

Here at BiP Solutions, we are delighted to announce an all-new series of monthly briefings and webinars specifically designed to help buyers and suppliers navigate the challenges which may arise in light of the proposed changes to the current procurement framework. Both the briefings and the accompanying webinars have been specifically tailored to help these organisations to ensure they can work effectively, compliantly and responsively in what is a dynamic and fast-changing environment.

We will also be hosting live events and creating other assets throughout 2021 and beyond, making sure we are supporting our clients through what will be one of the largest set of changes in the public sector procurement landscape for decades.

As well as the upcoming briefings and webinars, our research arm, BiP Inform will soon be releasing the report from our inaugural research project, aiming to give us a better understanding of the thoughts of public sector buyers and suppliers regarding the latest proposals.

‘The proposals within the Transforming Public Procurement Green Paper represent the largest changes to procurement process and practice in the UK for decades. At BiP Solutions we are tracking developments closely and have committed to ensuring our customers are the best informed about what these changes mean and how they should prepare for them. Exciting times lie ahead, but buyers and suppliers should engage with our campaign to ensure they have the information and insight they need to stay compliant and competitive as the proposals become policy and then practice’ (Grahame Steed, Content, Research and Communications Director, at BiP Solutions.)

Market Update – November in Review

Since the COVID-19 crisis began, we have harnessed Tracker’s powerful database, business intelligence and data analysis services to do what BiP has done for the last 36 years – bring buyers and suppliers together.

At the height of the crisis, the company monitored and analysed data from Tracker weekly to make sure that buyers and suppliers were kept up to date with activity in the public sector, with a special focus on central and local government, defence, education and health.

In light of the continuing restrictions and the autumn lockdown, our BiP Solutions media and marketing services, Cadence Marketing, have published a monthly report, in association with DCI to help you understand what is happening in the public sector and how our data, together with powerful business intelligence solutions like DCI and Supply2Defence, can help you engage earlier and succeed in this marketplace.

Each report considers how the public sector marketplace is responding to the latest changes before focusing on one of our key sectors in greater detail. In our latest monthly review, we examine defence trends and spends. Following the Government announcement of the biggest spend in Defence since the Cold War, now is the time for suppliers to tap into this marketplace.

Key Highlights Include:

  • 7374 contract notices published – a decrease of 2.49% compared with October’s figures (though still an increase of 11.27% from September)
  • Of the 2767 contract notices that stated a value, 1016 (36.71%) were worth £100,000 or less, while
    a further 685 (24.75%) were worth £100,000-£500,000, representing continued opportunities for SMEs
  • In November, the defence sector published 271 contract notices – the highest monthly volume since before the start of the first national lockdown in March
  • Well over half of defence notices published in November were non-OJEU, making them potentially of
    interest to SMEs
