Complex Procurements: Risk Assessment

Ms Beth Hague, Corporate ICT

“BPG’s approach is radically different to traditional government procurement. It’s about tying the service you procure to achieving your own business goals. The process attracts good suppliers and very quickly weeds out the bad. It’s very important for us to reduce risk in our procurement, so we would definitely recommend other organisations use BPG to do the same. In our case, we have used what we learned from BPG’s first risk-assessment project to successfully run our own procurements, but in future would consider using them again for high-risk, change-intensive or complex projects.”
