Video: Learning from the pandemic to shape the future of professional services procurement

What have we learned from the Covid-19 pandemic about the future of professional services procurement? And what impact are current supply chain crises and labour shortages having on the procurement of labour and services?

To answer these questions (among others), Comensura’s Client Solutions Director, Charles Austin, and I hosted a session at the Institute of Government & Public Policy’s Transforming Local Government Procurement 2021 online event.

We were joined by Paul Ashby, Category Manager at Oxfordshire County Council and Comensura customer. Paul talked us through Oxfordshire County Council’s experiences and challenges of the past 18 months, and how they’re tackling resourcing issues today.

Watch the recording of our session below to learn about:

  • Predicting the future of services procurement cost savings to identify effective post-pandemic workforce management strategies
  • Harnessing the power of digital transformation to improve efficiency and governance among the remote workforce
  • Adopting outcomes-based statement of work procurement and improved long-tail governance to achieve greater value for money
  • Improving permanent labour recruitment to get the optimal mix of permanent, contingent, and external workforce.
