Procurement Capability Reviews End of Wave 1 Overview Report†
This report provides a summary of the results and positive outcomes delivered following the Procurement Capability Reviews (PCRs) of sixteen major spending departments.
OGC has published a full report and improvement plan for each of these departments on its website (see the links at end of this report). Work in Wave 1 concluded that while there were many examples of good practice in procurement with many departments receiving a `fit for purpose' amber score against key indicators, there were capability shortfalls in:
- the number of highly capable commercial people
- contract management skills and resources
- management information
- ability to measure performance consistently
- departmental ability to influence in its wider organisation family (e.g. agencies, NDPBs, etc.)
This report presents a series of key facts; summarises the capability scores; highlights several positive outcomes; and, presents some real success stories.
