Helping Peterborough City Council to deliver savings of £1.8m for local taxpayers and winning a national award

Our procurement specialists work on behalf of Peterborough City Council who manage a major highways services contract. Services bought through the contract include road repairs, winter street gritting and maintenance of street lighting, drainage systems and bridges.

The project was named Contract Management Initiative of the Year 2017/18 at the GO Awards, which celebrate excellence in public procurement across the UK public sector.

The judges were looking specifically for evidence of: partnership, innovation, engagement, relationship management, effectiveness, value for money, delivery, stakeholder involvement and clear evidence of measurable benefit.

Our work with Peterborough City Council was selected not only for delivering savings of £1.8m over the first three years of the contract, but also for its strong management of environmental impacts, including successful delivery of a commitment to reduce carbon emissions by 15%.
