Joint procurement initiatives to realise value



DRAFT TEXT ONLY - NOT APPROVED

Overview

Transport spends approximately $12 billion each year across the cluster, and we need to look for ways to drive better value from this spend. The Joint Procurement Savings initiative will deliver improved financial and customer outcomes by more effectively managing our procurement spend. Through the Joint Procurement Savings initiative, we will manage the entire procurement lifecycle to leverage our buying power as One Transport organisation.

Benefits

  • Deliver simple and consistent procurement processes which enable us to harness our collective buying power as One Transport organisation.
  • Create greater transparency and alignment of procurement activities and spend across Transport.
  • Establish centres of procurement excellence to enable us to utilise services across the organisation.
  • Demonstrate our commitment to be smarter in the way we use taxpayer’s money.

Communication objectives

  • To communicate our new cluster procurement approach and systems, and how this will help us become more efficient.
  • To deliver communications about the benefits of acting as one organisation in the way we procure, encouraging employees to adopt our new approach.
  • To tell the story of our journey towards being smarter with taxpayer’s money.

Key message themes

  • Transport is introducing a cluster wide approach to procurement to help us be smarter in the way we spend taxpayer’s money.
  • The Joint Procurement Savings program will deliver cost savings which we can then reinvest in delivering more services for our customers.
  • We want to deliver solutions to ensure we are more joined up in the way we procure goods and services.
  • Transport is also delivering training and tools to help you manage procurement activities more easily.

The story

In the past …

Transport has historically procured goods and services by agency. This means we are not looking for opportunities to leverage our collective buying power as One Transport organisation. We don’t always get the best value for our spend, and we don’t consider how spend can be best utilised across Transport.

Then something happened …

As part of the NSW Procurement Whole of Government program to help us be smarter in the way we spend taxpayer’s money, Transport introduces a cluster wide approach to procurement. We identify and deliver solutions to ensure we are more joined up in the way we procure goods and services. We start taking a more commercial approach to our procurement spend. Transport also delivers training and tools to increase the overall capability of our business to consider the total spend and impact of procurement activities.

So now …

Transport is now spending our resources wisely and getting the best value from every dollar spent. We are also ensuring we leverage our spend cluster wide, which delivers more value for our customers.

Key milestones
