Roadmap Program

NSW Local Government Procurement Roadmap and the Procurement Spend Analysis and Dashboards Program 2016

Building on the highly successful Roadmap and Spend Analysis Programs undertaken with over 75 diverse NSW councils over the last four years, LGP and ArcBlue Consulting are very pleased to announce the NSW LG Procurement Roadmap and the Procurement Spend Analysis and Dashboards Programs for 2016, open to all NSW councils.

NSW local government is going through a time of change, dealing with the challenges and opportunities presented by: amalgamations, the establishment of regional joint organisations, and the commitments to financial efficiency and sustainability required through Fit for the Future.

One of the most critical aspects of council activity that needs to be optimised to address these challenges is in procurement. Councils in NSW typically spend between 50% and up to 65% of their annual budgets on external suppliers. With much of the rest of council expenditure locked into salaries, procurement presents some of the greatest opportunities for driving efficiencies, savings, and improved probity and performance. The individual opportunities available for councils in procurement can also be significantly enhanced by taking advantage of opportunities at a sub-regional, regional and sector-wide level.

The Procurement Roadmap Program and the Procurement Spend Analysis and Dashboards Program are designed specifically to explore these opportunities, by collecting, cleansing, reporting and analysing data and developing clear Roadmaps (strategies) to drive change. The Dashboards can also be expanded over time outside of procurement spend to include: service levels, shared service data, cost analysis etc. For those councils preparing for potential amalgamations, the Procurement Spend Analysis and Dashboards Program can integrate data across any potential combination of councils, while also being used to analyse and visualise data to support consideration and planning for amalgamation.
