How the City of London Corporation is modernising procurement in the City
(Norwich, UK, 10/08/2018)
The Commercial Director at the City of London Corporation speaks exclusively to the Europe edition of Business Chief magazine.
Nearing the end of its ambitious 2015-2018 procurement strategy, City of London Corporation has strived to become a leader in innovative, sustainable and modern procurement practice in the public sector.
City Procurement prioritised four strategic themes to deliver this strategy: operational excellence, value for money, corporate social responsibility, technology and innovation.
In doing so, the organisation now boasts best in class procurement practices and has established London as one of the premier cities to do business and be located in.
“We are responsible for the full P2P cycle so we own the whole relationship from end to end,” said Christopher Bell.
“We have a very hard working committed professional workforce and that's the game changer because that's the bit that you can't guarantee. We're fortunate that we've built an exceptional team here”
