Section 151 Officer or Head of Procurement
I am conducting research for my MBA which is being produced for the Local Government Association to support their Strategic Supplier Management project which aims to help councils reduce procurement spend and has a number of objectives that would be enhanced by the availability of more detailed data on what local government is procuring.
My MBA project is researching procurement data as a sector wide challenge for Local Government. The research aims to identify options that will aid the development of data gathering, analytics and intelligence to enhance Local government procurement capabilities that may benefit all the sector including your organisation.
This questionnaire is designed to be quick and easy to complete with multiple choice answers and should be treated by your organisation as a Freedom of Information request and responded to within 20 days.
