Staff changes in our procurement teams

Staff changes in our procurement teams

Following Sue Moffatt’s secondment, Dean Medcraft, Director, Finance & Operations will lead the Welsh Government Commercial and Procurement Directorate on an interim basis.

Dean has asked Jonathan Hopkins, Deputy Director Commercial and Procurement, to take responsibility NPS, Value Wales, The Commercial Procurement Brexit Team, Commercial Procurement ICT, Digital and Data Team, Corporate Procurement Service Team and the Business Intelligence Team reporting directly to him.

Dean was Senior Responsible Owner for the Review of NPS/Value Wales so already has insight into the requirements of public sector procurement. The Review led to the Ministerial statement on 5 September. The Statement outlined the need for a new procurement strategy based on transitioning the NPS to a smaller organisation and developing strengthened policy development and delivery units to meet stakeholder needs.

Over the next few weeks, some initial structural changes will take place whilst Dean and the senior management team undertake a more detailed review of what will be required to fully implement the Ministerial Statement. The statement is available here.

We will keep you updated as this work progresses via the newsletter.
