4 Procurement Development Why Procurement? E.g. NSW $32bn/ year – State Gov’t $25bn/ Local Gov’t $7bn – More than half of most councils’ overall expenditure – Has received little focus (administrative – not strategic) Procurement is moving from an administrative role to a strategic one Local Government Procurement Roadmap and Spend Analysis Programs Councils now recognising the importance of a structured approach to procurement capability development Supported by Regional Groups and other peak Local Government Procurement Bodies around Australia 180 Councils across 3 States have participated in Roadmaps since 2010 75 Councils now have Procurement ‘Dashboards’ in place 2013/ 2014 Regional Programs – NOROC, SSROC, Riverina, WSROC, Centroc, Eyre Peninsula, Barossa, Metro Adelaide, Geelong Region

5 Sustainable savings in external expenditure through: – Strategic Council contracts – Expanded use of LGAP contracts – Regional collaborative procurement – Demand management strategies Increased usage of local and regional suppliers, e.g. – Gold Coast spend through local suppliers increased from 49% to 63% over 2 years Improved performance, e.g. – Increased completion rates and performance of Capital Works delivery Streamlined internal processes – Targeted productivity savings Improved probity and reduced risk Social Procurement - Employment generation for local and disadvantaged communities, e.g. – G21 GROW Project – cross sector development of job creation strategies through procurement © ArcBlue Consulting 2014 5 Procurement Transformation and Collaboration Benefits

6 Impact of Reform on Procurement Structures – New economies of scale and maturity leading to new Centre-led structures Collaboration – Opportunities for stronger collaborative models and approaches Across Councils Local, Regional, State-wide Resourcing – Organisational restructuring - new opportunities for strengthened procurement commitment Contracts – Reset of contracts creates an opportunity to move beyond ‘business as usual’ State Regional Local

7 Procurement Reviews and Strategy Development Assessment of current state – Individual and joint Developing a clear strategy – Timing? – e.g. NSW Joint Organisations Procurement as a driver and enabler of change – e.g. Auckland City Council (ACC), Renewals SA Procurement Reviews provided by WALGA and supported by ArcBlue – Council by Council or opportunities for regional/ sector-wide programs? E.g. Vic, SA, NSW

8 Data Analysis – Data analytics is transforming our understanding of local government procurement and service delivery – Individual, joint and regional data analysis – e.g. NSW Joint Organisations – Creation of Shared ‘Dashboards Spend and Opportunity Dashboards, Service delivery comparisons, Data matching and sharing to support decision-making ArcBlue ‘Dashboards’ – Now available in partnership with WALGA – Specifically designed for Local Government

9 Why analyse spend? LG Sector generally has a poor understanding of what we spend and who we spend it with Reduces Councils ability to: – Analyse spend and transaction patterns, and strategically plan for better procurement (opportunity analysis) – Easily track spend and performance by category, supplier or contract – Track compliance, cumulative/purchase card spend etc. – Quickly and effectively report on procurement and performance Reduces Regional/ sector ability to: – Track spend patterns and identify opportunities to improve existing contracts or identify new ones – Accurately monitor and measure contracts and suppliers – Benchmark performance 9 All rights reserved

10 Spend analysis challenges Reasons for lack of spend analysis in LG Sector: – Range of financial systems used: Civica, Tech One, Oracle etc. makes it difficult to extract and then consolidate data – Systems are set up for finance processes, not procurement – Data in the systems is often poor quality (not ‘clean’ – not categorised, inconsistent supplier names used, etc.) – Spend analytics done in-house is often time consuming and expensive because skills are underdeveloped in the sector – It has always been difficult to compare data across Councils 10 All rights reserved
