Tina Holland, Procurement Lead at the Local Government Association (LGA), recently outlined how Porge has been helping the LGA to support local authorities during the Covid-19 pandemic:
“The Local Government Association (LGA) has been working with Councils and their partners, engaging with key strategic suppliers through our Strategic Supplier Management Programme since 2016. We’ve been using Porge to help us to identify Local Government’s key suppliers, reported category spend and to build detailed public sector market views and run trend analysis.
“Porge has proved an invaluable tool, particularly during the Covid-19 pandemic, to help us focus our support offer to the relevant councils with in-depth analysis on cross cutting supplier related issues, such as payment of supplier relief, as well as shaping our intelligence as we move into the transition and recovery phases with areas for future cost savings and identifying emerging public sector procurements”
Porge is proud to be working with the LGA to support councils as they continue their admirable response to the pandemic.
