How Can the Public Sector and its Suppliers Work Together to Deliver Tangible Social Value?

There is an ecological, moral, and legal imperative for government to use its public spend to deliver social value. Yet this is not without its challenges: it’s difficult to aggregate impacts across a policy area, there’s a lack of clear baselines, it requires deep supply chain relationships, and sustainability initiatives need to be put at the heart of delivery. There is a fantastic opportunity for the government commercial profession to build on the existing foundations to develop the culture, behaviours, and insights to maximise social value outcomes.

Lead Public Sector End-User Satisfaction & Smart IT Spend

ROOM: Gielgud

Local councils and other Public Sector IT teams can find themselves firefighting issues and getting distracted from day-to-day tasks rather than focusing on strategic, cost-saving initiatives.  

Having the right insight into usage and user experience, enables organisations to better support their hybrid end-users whilst controlling IT asset costs. You can reduce the number of devices requiring replacement by analysing employee experience, not just the age of the device. 

Dan will be discussing:  

  • A real-life example how Riverbed have enabled a local council to:  
    • Overcome poor performance with business and governance critical social care applications 
    • Proactively troubleshoot IT issues to ensure social workers can input critical, time sensitive data when needed with no problems – reducing MTTR (mean time to resolution) 
    • Understand the true end-user experience of both citizens and end-users 
  • Controlling costs: Reduce your device and enterprise software IT spend with insights into employee experience and usage

Government procurement and compliance teams are under pressure to deal with an increasing variety and pace of change and risk in the supply chain. From macro issues and regulations, to needing to scale and meet targets for SMEs, understanding risk exposure and building resilience in the supply chain is challenging.

During this session, attendees will learn: 

  • How to quality, structured data can help agencies to understand suppliers and the risk they pose 
  • How data can be used to improve the due diligence process and in entity resolution to provide a single view of a supplier cross-departments 
  • How automation and technology can be used to accelerate the contracting process and monitor change on an ongoing basis

Driving Sustainability and Social Value Through your Supply Chain

ROOM: Moore

As sustainability targets continue to gain increasing momentum within business agendas, so too does the pressure from investors, shareholders, customers, and colleagues, for companies to push the sustainability agenda within their own supply chains — boosting the environmental, social, and economic performance throughout the entire lifecycle.

While incorporating sustainability and social value into your procurement process may feel like a challenging feat, failure to act could be the biggest risk of all.

Join Debbie Wall, Head of Responsible Business at OT Group, as she delves into ways to foster a sustainable supply chain for your public sector organisation, touching upon:

  • How to utilise smart procurement processes to support environmental and sustainable agendas

  • Setting up preferred suppliers
  • The power of procurement data
  • An introduction to OT Group’s industry’s leading procurement engine, SmartPad
