Partnership with PSProcure - Embedding Social Value

Posted on July 2021

PS Procure partnership

​We are delighted to be delivering a number of new projects across a growing client base in partnership with PSProcure, the shared procurement service between the London Borough of Waltham Forest and the London Borough of Redbridge.

We have worked with PSProcure over the last 5 years and after a hiatus following the reconfiguration and rebranding of the Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) for Specialist Professional Services we have seen a real improvement and drive in providing a quick route to market along with robust governance mechanics.

Working in collaboration with the PSProcure team has been excellent; their knowledge around procurement & governance and open communication has led to greater assurance for us and clients, and we feel valued as a delivery partner.

We pleased to have been able to embed Social Value into our delivery through the framework, enabling clients and their stakeholders to benefit from our experience in employment. With numerous Employability & Digital Inclusion workshops lined up for later in the year our programme continues to expand and support our belief in employment for all.

 “It has been great working with Jay and team, the communication and advice has really helped us to continue delivering successful outcomes for our clients”

David Harney, Senior Executive Consultant

 “I’ve been really impressed with the PSProcure team and the consistent engagement across the year, which has fostered great results. Being able to formally embed social value within our delivery is an important feature of the DPS and Jay and the teams’ commitment to communities and genuine enthusiasm for our approach makes it all the more enjoyable to deliver.”

Rula Tripolitaki, Head of Public Sector Business Development

“Venn Group are working with stakeholders across Waltham Forest and Redbridge in the delivery of several outcomes based consultancy projects. They continue to bring new ideas and methods of delivering Social Value to both local authorities. Our Dynamic Purchasing System allows users to procure consultancy services quickly and compliantly, whilst ensuring social value acts as a key component of the evaluation process.”
