The OGP hosted the Public Procurement Client Conference 2022. The two-day event saw a range of expert speakers highlight innovative plans in the public procurement space.

The event was open to public servants, and took place in the Printworks, Dublin Castle.

The first day covered procurement in goods and services and gave clients an opportunity to chat with Sourcing Portfolios about their requirements and procurement arrangements. 

There were expert speakers covering a range of topics throughout the day.

The second day focused on achieving climate action targets in the works sector through implementing Building Information Modelling and Measuring embodied carbon, with international case studies and industry speakers.

Attendees heard from industry and international speakers. Central Purchasing Bodies had several stands at the venue. Sourcing teams were on hand to offer expert advice and guidance and answer any procurement queries.

Philip presented on Data Driven Procurement Planning

Embracing sustainable business practice is now a must for organisations and core to what we do here at EPS. We are committed to supporting our clients deliver on their green mandate, taking a strategic, data-driven approach. 

The multi-annual procurement planning model (MAPP) approach of “consolidate, aggregate, analyse” enables organisations to leverage data-driven procurement practices to their full extent. MAPP facilitates the gathering of insights from sustainability data to power positive change while increasing value for money. Data is collected annually producing a three-year rolling multi-annual procurement plan. The education sector aggregated MAPP data provides the Office of Government Procurement (OGP) with a detailed list of education’s defined future requirements over a three-year period. Managing the entire procurement and sourcing process from end-to-end entails oversight of multiple factors and subprocesses.

It is a vital forecasting and planning tool for education institutions as it allows them to collate and aggregate their predicted spend data for the forthcoming three years including details on current contract status, contract expiry dates, and number of procurement transactions per year. In a data-driven world, procurement planning is now more important than ever. Organisations are increasingly turning to data-driven procurement planning in order to improve their purchasing processes. Harnessing the power of analytics and analysing past purchase data, we can identify trends and patterns that help make more informed decisions to ensure that our procurement needs are met in as timely and cost-effective a manner as possible. This approach can lead to cost savings and a better overall procurement process ensuring compliance with the procurement aspect of the Code of Governance and achieving best value for money for the taxpayer.
