Finance IT System Procurement

David Johnson, Assistant Chief Executive

“Best Practice Group has a real impact.  I’d encourage any local authority wanting to manage large IT projects to have specialist procurement help.  But BPG has been particularly effective with us because they’ve given us real-world advice, and a real understanding of how IT works.  They helped us ensure we complied with European legislation like OJEU and the work they have done will ensure we don’t have problems down the line.  We now use their frameworks for all our larger procurements, and it’s been a big help for sorting out problems well before we get to the contract stage.”
