16th June - Birmingham & 24th September - Cambridge
A half day seminar and briefing developed and run by Ken Cole and Christine Morton setting out how SRD is being used in the public sector as a new source for efficiency gains and risk reduction. This is not theory but actual practice based on first hand experience.
Supplier Relationship Development / Management (SRD) is a technique practiced in the private sector for many years and is now taking hold in the public sector. It is perfectly legal in the public sector even under the EU Public Procurement Directives. In very simple terms it involves it collaborating with other public sector organisations in order to work with identified contractors in order to improve service quality, remove barriers, and identify areas for cost reduction.
SRD is already practiced in some areas and has been developed specifically in London by the former London Centre of Excellence which has been piloting it for nearly a year now with two leading local government providers in the waste collection and adult social care sectors.
The challenging financial situation faced by the UK public sector, together with the recommendation of the recent Roots Review on local government procurement means that for many collaborative working needs to be a major source of new cashable gains in the coming financial years if serious levels of service reduction are not to be realised. The economic down turn has also made many public sector bodies look at their risk of exposure should a strategic supplier fail. SRD can help in the management of such risks.
This is a management programme, based on briefing representatives on the background to SRD and how it is being implemented in practice. It requires no technical knowledge, and is highly interactive to maximise the transfer of knowledge to those people attending. There is lots of practical advice on how to carry out SRD from two leading practitioners that have developed, implemented and championed it over the last three years.
