New HEPA resource: The Procurement Journey

27 February 2014      Laura Compton,

HEPA has launched another new resource, the Procurement Journey, to support all levels of procurement activity and to help manage the expectations of stakeholders, customers and suppliers alike.

The Procurement Journey, which complements the resources and documentation already available on the HEPA website, gives procurement professionals and wider institutional buyers access to a comprehensive 'how to' guide to procurement, including a wealth of useful materials, standardised documentation, up-to-date legislation information, and references to appropriate external advice websites.

The processes, templates and guides allow procurement professionals to concentrate on the higher value, higher risk areas in which they can add value and deliver value for money for the public purse. The Journey is also suitable for other budget holders required to procurement goods and services for their institution, and there are simplified processes, templates and guidance to support individuals with authority to procure lower value, lower risk procurements.

The Journey is easy to use and has been professionally reviewed to offer a consistent approach to the procurement process across the sector. HEPA would encourage you to use the source documentation in the Procurement Journey for every procurement exercise to ensure you are always using the most recent guidance and templates on an ongoing basis.
