6 Strategic View Crown Commercial Service (CCS) Vision: To deliver value for the nation through outstanding commercial capability and quality customer service. Our role is to provide an integrated commercial and procurement service for Government and the UK public sector, including Health, Local Government, Devolved Administrations, Education and Not for Profit organisations. Vision in Practice: CCS has a key role in supporting the delivery of the Government Spending Review Strategy Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, Comprehensive Spending Review (CSR 2013) targeting efficiency savings
7 Strategic View The role of CCS Frameworks in delivery of the Government Spending Review Strategy: –Government acting effectively as a single customer when purchasing goods and services. –Promoting collaboration on solutions across Public Sector –Creation of a procurement vehicle facilitating individual or collaborative procurements of varying scales –This desire for local government integration further increases the requirement for suppliers to make sure they have a good understanding of local agendas. –Promote increase shared services adoption particularly on an intra- regional basis, particularly if suppliers can offer specific solutions targeted at specific policies or problem areas. Framework as a vehicle for
8 Strategic View TMT Framework supporting Government Spending Review Strategy: –Reducing cost of TMT across government – VFM –Focussing pan-public sector TMT requirement –Enable collaboration where possible –Creating competitive market for TMT services –Increasing number & mix of suppliers, including SMEs –Streamlining procurement processes for TMT related services –Specify outcomes rather than inputs –Standardise –Fast route to market The role of the TMT Framework ? Consolidate Demand Consolidate Demand Choice Competition Efficiency
9 Customer Feedback - TMTi Positive: Has delivered significant savings to the Tax Payer Saves us time and money as we dont have to go to OJEU Covers a significant degree of our TMT requirements There isnt much the framework does not cover (TMT) Appreciate the support CCS have provided in use of Framework Room for improvement: Framework awareness across Wider Public Sector (WPS) Complex call-off process – lengthy and costly to implement Limited number of suppliers on lots – limited choice Limited catalogue options & inconsistent approach to deployment Key objective of TMTii – Build upon success of TMTi through addressing identified issues Working together

22 Transport Scotland Current and Future Use of the Traffic Management Technology Framework David Marshall Operations Policy Manager Trunk Road Network Operations Transport Scotland
23 c The Scottish Trunk Road Network measures over 3,400km in length and with a gross value of over £16 billion is the Scottish Governments single biggest asset. Transport Scotland, an agency of the Scottish Government, is responsible for managing, maintaining and improving the network on behalf of Scottish Ministers. Trunk Roads are vital to Scotlands economy with 39% of road travel taking place on Trunk Roads. Management of the traffic on our network is supported by: 150 variable message signs; 500 overhead lane control signals; 140 CCTV cameras; 1700 traffic monitoring installations; 800 emergency telephones; An extensive journey time system.
24 Traffic monitoring, control and informing is carried out from the new National Traffic Control Centre at South Queensferry, near Edinburgh. c This increasingly complex road network now makes use of Intelligent Transport Systems to help regulate the flow of traffic at some particularly busy locations.
25 c The maintenance and improvement of this network could not take place without the many procurement exercises required to enlist the services of the private sector. In each case all the possible procurement options are considered and there is an increasing awareness within Transport Scotland of the benefits of using the Traffic Management Technology Framework. Recent procurements through the Framework include: The upgrading of 48 safety cameras to digital; Average speed camera equipment for the A9; 3D laser scanning equipment for use in accident investigation; Traffic Management Technology Consultancy Services.
26 c Looking towards the future, TMTii will provide an important option when considering procurement strategy. It will offer the following advantages: A streamlined process with easy access to approved expert suppliers; A model contract document with standard terms and conditions that can be tailored to particular projects; A wide ranging and flexible lot structure; The use of the eSourcing tool to manage the further competition process; The ability to order from catalogues. The use of the TMT Framework ties in with our Corporate Plans stated intention of using transport public procurement to maximum effect so that the public sector makes maximum use of its purchasing power. Transport Scotland has an ambitious programme of road improvement works to deliver over the next few years, ranging from small but important road safety improvements to major schemes such as the £3 billion A9 dualling project.

Getting Full Value from SME suppliers Richard Hassett Small & Medium Enterprise Programme 1 April 2014
40 The Coalition Agreement UNCLASSIFIED We will promote small business procurement, in particular by introducing an aspiration that 25% of government contracts* should be awarded to small and medium-sized businesses and by publishing government tenders in full online and free of charge. Re-iterated in the Mid Term Review: We will aim to ensure that 25% of government spend goes to SMEs *by value directly and in the supply chain Getting Full Value from SMEs
41 The Prime Ministers speech 11 Feb 2011 41 Getting Full Value from SMEs Today, we are announcing big changes to the way government does business. No one should doubt how important this is. Its important for getting to grips with our deficit – as it will help us tackle waste and control public spending....the system doesnt encourage small and medium-sized businesses, charities and social enterprises to compete for contracts… …the very firms who can provide the competitive pressure to drive down costs..... wherever possible, were going to break up large contracts into smaller elements, so that SMEs can make a bid and get involved
42 What is an SME? 42 Getting Full Value from SMEs StaffTurnover, m Micro<10<2 Small10 to 492 to 10 Medium50 to 249<50 SMEs must be autonomous. There is a complicated definition of autonomy but it means not owned nor controlled by another enterprise EU headquartered SMEs retain their SME status if they outgrow the limit for both the rest of that financial year and the whole of the following financial year
43 Getting Full Value from SMEs Key SME Programme Reforms Introduced the Crown Representative for SMEs – they have a voice at the top table Developing tools to make it easier to find opportunities to do business with Government – Contracts Finder, Solutions Exchange Reformed the procurement process removing barriers – abolished PQQ below threshold, LEAN SMEs given new channels of communication including Mystery Shopper and SME Panel Lead ministers and SME Champions appointed. Departmental SME plans with specific targets for spend with SMEs Big is not always beautiful – Optimal contract size Optimise lotting structure Getting the best bidders bidding Changing buying behaviours and supporting achievement of the 25% aspiration
44 Direct spend with SMEs has increased 4 % of total Central Government spend on Goods and Services In FY12/13 9.4 % is spent indirectly with SMEs 10.5% is spent directly FY11/12 vs FY12/13 direct spend Getting Full Value from SMEs
45 7 key steps to working with SME suppliers 45 Getting Full Value from SMEs 1. Understanding that the goal is Getting Full Value from SME suppliers This means buying from an SME supplier every time they are the best value for money. 2. Setting Optimal Contract Sizing i.e. Knowing when Big is Beautiful and when Small is Beautiful 3. Using optimal lotting structures 4. Getting the Best (SME) Bidders Bidding 5. Getting them to Do Good Bids (we already have a fix for this by hosting bidding skills seminars) 6. Winning the hearts and minds of the customers (to be happy to buy from suppliers new to them) 7. Avoiding common pitfalls in delivery by providing appropriate help in contract management to both buyers newly buying from an SME and to SMEs supplying for the first time.
46 The EU directive will help 46 Getting Full Value from SMEs ¶Transposition within 2 years but planned for late 2014 ¶Buyers will have to sub-lot or explain their reasons. The Recitals suggest that reasons could include restricting competition or making execution hard. ¶Turnover caps limited to 2 times the contract value ¶Buyers can limit the number of lots any one bidder can win ¶Pre-market engagement explicitly permitted ¶Greater use of supplier self-declarations where only the winning bidder has to submit certificates ¶Poor prior performance is explicitly permitted as grounds for exclusion ¶Simplification of the rules on Dynamic Purchasing Systems ¶Ability to reserve awards to VCSEs for a limited period ¶E-marketplaces expressly permitted ¶Minimum times for responses are cut by a third to allow for faster procurements
47 Further opportunities 47 Getting Full Value from SMEs 1. Moving away from risk aversion and taking a proportionate approach to risk 2. Being driven by customer needs rather than procurement processes 3. Make more use of SBRI 4. Mobilise the supply chain to increase their use of SMEs and encourage prompt payment
48 GDS are driving change from the heart of Government 5 Exemplar projects Oversight of central government projects New procurement channels GDS 127 digital projects 25 exemplar projects including: Electoral registration, Rural support (CAP), PAYE for employees, Criminal Record Check & Visa Applications Approve technical aspects of projects Facilitate pre-market engagement with departments Advise on technical architecture Build skills & drive behavioural change in departments Promote Open Standards G Cloud Digital Services Framework (DSF) Simplification of the framework tendering process Getting Full Value from SMEs
49 SME spend on G-Cloud is going from strength to strength 8 G-Cloud 3 83% of suppliers are SMEs 58% of total spend is going to SMEs G-Cloud 4 84% of suppliers are SMEs £m, invoices Getting Full Value from SMEs
50 Through G Cloud SMEs win over two thirds of Central Government IT business %, invoices Getting Full Value from SMEs
51 Improving the Cloudstore means... Making it easier for suppliers to upload catalogues Simplifying the accreditation process Increasing awareness of the Cloud store amongst the Government customer base 12 Expanding the product range on Cloudstore to meet the needs of Government customers Getting Full Value from SMEs
52 Kainos case study 52 Getting Full Value from SMEs Kainos are a Belfast based software house with a large business building bespoke software as well as some product businesses In early 2012, Mark ONeill from Government Digital Service was looking for an agile software development house to build new digital web sites using agile. Kainos then were under 250 people. Early major projects included the Electoral Roll system (ERTP) where we had a quote for £35m and Kainos built it for £0.8m. By 2013 Kainoss government business was growing largely through G Cloud. They did projects for Defra, DfiD, DVLA, the Cabinet Office and VOSA (DfT). At this point they were investing in growing the business and learning how to compete. Focus was still on front end systems. By 2014 Kainos are competing for bigger back end mission critical systems and have 530 people. Their key lesson is to maintain quality of delivery.
