Customer / Member Organisations

The National Procurement Service has been established as a cross public sector collaboration to procure common and repetitive spend for Wales.

Following the recommendation of the Buying Smarter in Tougher Times report, the National Procurement Service project was created and the business case established to include all Welsh local authorities, the NHS, police forces, fire services, higher and further education, the Welsh Government and Welsh Government sponsored bodies.

During the development of the business case a number of different options were short-listed and a hosted model was chosen as the preferred option. Consultation on the business case commenced in October 2013 and all sectors within the business case signed up to join the service.

Heat Maps

From March 2016, NPS is publishing a series of contract utilisation heat maps – these are high level visual representations that display whether or not an organisation has used an NPS Framework Agreement / Contract during a given period. The heat maps are developed using Management Information provided to NPS by suppliers on each Framework Agreement / Contract.

The first in the series to be published is specific to local authorities for the period April 15 – December 15 2015.
