The National Procurement Service
30 November 2017
On behalf of the Auditor General for Wales, we have examined whether the National Procurement Service (NPS) is helping to deliver value for money in public spending and is fit for the future.
Indicative figures show that public bodies in Wales spent £234 million through NPS frameworks and contracts in 2016-17, £222 million of which related to members organisations. However, public bodies are not using NPS frameworks as much as anticipated, resulting in concerns over its funding, less than anticipated savings – £14.8 million reported for 2016-17 – and with many of its members dissatisfied.
