“Performance through Procurement” brings together 11 of our Partners who are tier 1 contractors, their key supply chain members and client organisations to drive increased performance through the adoption of better procurement and supply chain management practices and improved collaboration.

We will achieve this through five key activities:

  1. Developing a supply chain performance dashboard - to track performance improvements.
  2. Developing a procurement skills diagnostic tool - to assess the training needs of participants.
  3. Developing 8 CPD accredited training courses, 8 e-learning modules and an online resource library of learning videos, materials and tools.
