By partnering with blue light organisations we are influencing the use of public resources, to deliver benefits directly back into the front-line.
It’s the strength of the partnerships with our member organisations that allows us to deliver real value. We support the delivery of Policing Vision 2025 by collectively sharing our knowledge, processes, and data, in order to create a stronger, unified team focused on the operational resources available to the front-line. It is this focus that drives us to constantly look for improvements and efficiencies, pushing the boundaries of what is achievable and so delivering a journey to commercial excellence.
Our relationship with suppliers, both locally and nationally, is also built on trust and collaboration as we work to ensure the highest level of innovation and quality is delivered in the most commercially viable and sustainable way.
We are responsible for the interface with external bodies including the Home Office, the Government Commercial Organisation and Crown Commercial Services. Local commercial teams use our support to help boost their own resources and capabilities.
Our hands on approach ensures we work side by side with blue light procurement teams, understanding the priorities and helping to provide the tools and technical expertise needed to deliver value and innovation directly to the front-line.
Our offer encompasses strategic commercial support across blue light procurement functions. This includes best practice commercial processes, capability, data and market analysis, contract management, revenue generation, and specialist expertise in core categories:
Experts in fleet, aviation and related commercial activity
Ensuring best practice and value for money across all professional services
Bringing a more consistent approach to operational procurement
Experts on estates and facilities management, energy and the construction project lifecycle
Supporting the management of key strategic suppliers and contracts and evaluating market risk
Working to embed core principles for Social Value measurement and analysis
Our ambition is to be the trusted partner and 'go to' commercial service, working with blue light organisations to deliver value through commercial expertise and innovation, ensuring the responsible and sustainable use of public resources.
