Procurement the Westminster way
This is an exciting time for procurement at Westminster. The service is undergoing a significant transformation that will position it to deliver outstanding value to the council and the communities it serves.
Strong support from the Chief Executive, Executive Leadership Team and Cabinet Members will ensure that Westminster has the potential to be one of the most capable, effective and well-regarded procurement services – not only in local government, but in the wider public sector.
Key developments include:
A new Director of Commercial Partnerships post, with responsibility for strategic leadership of £700m of annual third party expenditure
An expanded, strengthened senior management team with professional leads across all key disciplines
A key position in the Finance & Resources directorate, with strong support and sponsorship from the Executive Director for Finance & Resources and the whole Leadership Team
Direct alignment between procurement resource and the council’s main departments, which has already radically improved collaboration and customer satisfaction and is positioning procurement as a trusted organisational partner
For the first time at Westminster, bringing together procurement activity for all services, including Corporate, Place-based, Adults, Children’s and Public Health
Providing selected services on a bi-borough basis for Westminster City Council and the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea
We’re determined to deliver the high value, efficient services we need to make our vision a reality. This this your opportunity to be part of it.
