Government Procurement Workstream Update #02.2021

Current work underway

We are holding a meeting of the working group (late March) to agree next steps and begin shaping up some initiatives.

Upcoming engagements and milestones

A series of deep-dive workshops this month and it would be great to have as many involved in these as possible.

Emerging themes

There is no silver bullet – it will take a range of initiatives across a range of areas to change the skills mismatch situation. Hardest will be a changed mindset from employers and others.

Potential funding needs

Using Agile Playbook launch to build more initiatives around supporting suppliers and businesses and building agency capability in areas deemed useful by the sector. Bringing in resource to begin collecting and publishing information held by agencies.

Potential challenges

Finding a balance between initiatives that are both achievable and that will make a genuine difference for the sector will be a challenge in this workstream.
