YPO, one of the UK’s largest publicly owned buying organisations, has launched a new digital solutions framework providing up to 15%-time efficiency savings and procurement management in the public sector.
In a partnership between adam, a digital services provider, and YPO, the single-supplier framework has been created to offer bespoke commissioning solutions to local authorities and public sector organisations. The framework provides compliant access to a range of services, enabling users to personalise how best to manage their procurement and rapidly adapt their categories of spending in relation to digital services.
The framework supports every area within a public sector setting, including health and social care, transport, housing, and construction. Following an increased demand for bespoke solutions during Covid-19, adam and YPO are streamlining ten administrative processes to allow customers to respond quickly to emerging demands on their time following Covid-19.
The YPO framework will prevent resource intensive and administrative setbacks in long procurement process, creating more time for decision making bodies and helping to reduce overall costs. adam’s solutions have already been proven in the sector, with one local authority benefiting from streamlined invoicing, reducing 9,600 manual invoices to 52 electronic invoices.
Aligned with the framework launch, local authorities and clinical commissioning groups are eligible for a free recovery consultation to assess the impact of Covid-19.
Natalie Jenkins, Marketing Director for adam, said:
“adam is delighted to be working with YPO on its latest framework. We understand the demands on public sector organisations in terms of budgets and resource, and from this we’ve designed our technology so that it’s flexible to make operational processes more automated and streamlined. Our mission is to provide ongoing support and make a real difference to the way our customers operate, something we achieve through building an understanding of their market challenges.”
Andy Perrins, Category Manager at YPO, said:
“We’re excited to be bringing a flexible and resource-saving framework to the public sector and know that the benefits it will bring to local authorities and public sector organisations will be a great relief. It’s common for organisations to have high volumes of admin to organise their procurement processes and by introducing this dynamic solution, we’re confident that time and money can be saved through a better flexible working structure. Working closely with adam, we’re providing a top-quality commissioning solution, with personalised service advice, understanding that time and cost savings are of increased importance as we continue to adapt working practices during the Covid-19 pandemic.”
