Background

Previous approaches to travel procurement within local authorities and the wider public sector have been fragmented. Public sector buying organisations have traditionally influenced travel through their Travel Management Company frameworks; however it was recognised that many organisations who have never had a travel contract, or who procure through publically available travel websites, required a different solution.

To support the strategic development of the travel market we collaborated with YPO to establish a framework for a brand new solution for travel, aimed at local authorities and the wider public sector. The key drivers for this collaborative approach are:

  • To aggregate requirements and spend to exert maximum leverage on the market, with the aim of delivering efficiencies and cost savings to customers
  • To reduce procurement process costs for customers by providing a quick and efficient route to market that is in line with EU regulations
  • To provide a robust service offering to all customers

This framework provides customers with a route to market for all travel management services meaning customers do not need to publish their requirements by OJEU or pre-qualify suppliers in order to procure services from them.
