Survey: Covid-19 and Beyond: Lessons from the Crisis – Optimising Outcomes from Procurement and Partnering for Covid-19 and Beyond
Academics from Oxford, Northumbria, Cardiff and Stirling Universities have formed a collaboration, facilitated by the Centre for Partnering, to deliver the UK’s largest research programme into the impact of Covid-19 on local government procurement and partnering. The ‘Optimising Outcomes’ project is funded by a grant from the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), as part of the UK Research and Innovation’s Covid-19 research initiative. The Research Director is Dr Richard Simmons from the University of Stirling.
Optimising Outcomes for Covid-19 and Beyond: Lessons from the Crisis local government survey!
Adding value to local government’s annual procurement spend of £100bn is key. Our aim is to work with all UK local authorities to improve outcomes, add value and enhance the recovery.
This important project – the largest and most comprehensive study of its kind in the UK – looks at how local authority managers use commissioning and procurement as tools to achieve positive outcomes for their communities.
This survey is designed for ALL SENIOR MANAGERS in UK local government. The reach and influence of this research mean that every answer you provide WILL make a difference.
