Councils Need to Innovate

In advance of Wednesdays meeting on Public Procurement,   News today via Contract Journal:

Local authorities need to consider more innovative approaches to delivering public services, 4ps chairman Cllr Edward Lord will tell delegates at the organisation’s second annual conference tomorrow. There has never been a more important time for partnership working in the local government sector,” he will say.
“Innovation, together with value for money, goes to the heart of the rationale for the public, private and third sectors working together toimprove services for local people.”

Whilst searching through this story the following raised my interest:

4PS are the local governments project delivery specialists – mainly for complex projects but their website contains useful information. aims to provide access to below-threshold public sector contract opportunities for suppliers

And of course the OGC (Office of Government and Commerce) website, documentation guides and Delivery Toolkit. In addition the OGC’s report 2005-15 Construction Demand / Capacity Study report is worth reading to understand short term future trends for public procurement and construction delivery.
