Saving £84 million for the Welsh public sector

Supporting the Welsh public sector to deliver £84 million in benefits                                       

The Welsh Government launched the xchangewales e-procurement programme to encourage collaborative purchasing and deliver efficiency savings across the Welsh public sector.  

CMC’s team of experts worked with the Welsh Government over a period of 5 years, providing a broad range of services and resources to deliver the programme. We established and ran the Programme Management Office (PMO) to coordinate and control the programme, and integrated change management principles into programme delivery.  We established programme governance, and engaged with organisations, procurement leaders and collaborative partners.  We provided specialists in programme management, project management, stakeholder engagement, change communications and benefits management.  Our consultants fully integrated with the customer, working together as one team.  We also set up and ran a managed service to support supplier adoption of electronic procurement.

Five years later over 200 organisations had adopted xchangewales services, delivering £84million in benefits to the Welsh public sector.
