Procurement and Savings Calendar Launched on 5 February 2018

What is the Procurement and Savings Calendar?

The Procurement and Savings Calendar will give you an overview of all the available savings levers and contract launch activity all in one place. It will help you to schedule procurement opportunities into your Cost Improvement Plans which will help you to maximise savings throughout the year.

  • The first tab gives you an overview of all the savings levers available for the 24 priority categories. Click links for more information on NCP, Compare and Save, Top Proven Switches and Price Ranking.
  • The second tab gives you a forward view of all the contract launch activity up to 12 months.

Key Features

  • It is available in excel format and will be updated on a weekly basis. You can download the calendar above.
  • The 24 categories (in tab one) are sorted alphabetically by Framework so you can see all the savings levers that are available on each framework. As it is in excel, you can re-sort by contract start date or as required.
  • It will provide you with a forward view of contract launches (in tab two) for the next 12 months.
  • As a new contract is launched, we will add a hyperlink to the Contract Information Page-this will be visible on the calendar for up to 3 months.

Contact your Account Manager for more information on the potential savings opportunities.

Each of the savings delivery opportunities sit under the 24 National Category Strategies, which are aligned to our national Trusted Customer Programme.
