9 The customer viewpoint I no longer worry about whether my ICT will work or not I can get access to the data I need to help me with my planning and to target interventions I know that I am getting value for money I have reduced my spend on energy It takes less than a minute to log on at the start of a lesson I was able to specify what I needed and to procure it through a single process

10 Providing input to the ICT services project Focus groups proved invaluable in understanding stakeholder requirements and priorities Further rounds of consultation now beginning in order to help inform the best procurement strategy and approach Only a limited number of respondents can be consulted via PwC. However, an open opportunity exists for everyone to have their say and provide feedback by participating via the online community at:

11 How can you help? Indicate your interest and initial views by completing the forms in the delegate packs Key areas we would like your views on include: Scope and structure of emerging ICT services procurement arrangement The most effective procurement route and approach The critical success factors to ensure that ICT services procurement arrangement is a success The key service cost drivers Service performance levels and the impact they have on costs

12 How can you help? A representative sample will then be selected and PwC will make contact during the next working week Information provided and used in the project will be treated anonymously Participation in the consultation will not give suppliers any competitive advantage in any subsequent procurement process

13 What are your immediate thoughts on the proposed scope and structure of the ICT services procurement arrangement? What will be the biggest challenges or opportunities in delivering the core and or innovation services described in the proposed delivery model? What are the key success factors in any accreditation of organisations in the supply chain? What industry-led models exist or are there other preferred models we should explore?
