DoH HSC Procurement Strategic Action Plan

On the 23rd October 2015 DoH wrote to HSC Chief Executives issuing the HSC Strategic Procurement Action Plan 2015 -2018. This plan contains a number of actions for HSC organisations including BSO.

STRATEGIC PROCUREMENT ACTION PLAN

2015 – 2018


Status Update

March 2017

RPB 23/2017

  1. The Action Plan was issued in Autumn 2015. The 31 targets of the action plan are monitored by DoH in more detail but reported to RPB on a high level basis. ALBs were not canvassed for this monitoring paper which represents the position as at March 2017.




  1. The status of time-limited targets will be flagged to RPB and time-limited targets that are completed will be monitored under “ongoing” i.e. with reporting by exception only.The timeframe for 17 of the 31 targets is now “ongoing” and RPB will be updated by exception on these.



  1. The following table summarises progress:

The deadlines of some targets have been adjusted by previous meetings of the RPB.


Targets that will fall due by March and April 2017 which are not complete

  1. #24 on engaging to secure supply chain arrangements has progressed for some Trusts and fell due in March 2017. The returns would suggest that most opportunities have now been discussed, although discussion with Northern and Southern Trusts may be outstanding.




  1. #22 Agree training programme and delivery arrangements for appropriate DoH ALB staff - April 17 PaLS reports that 90 training places were made available to Trusts in March 2017. PaLS and DoH engaging with CPD about availability of CAL commercial skills offering. This includes some online and some taught elements. Courses include market awareness and contract management.


Horizon


  1. On the horizon remain five recommendations




    • A target that is due by October 17 is #16(common risk management procurement strategy) - as one may not be needed.




    • #20 Pharmacy procurement governance review (deadline September 17) and the implementation at #21 due March 18 (will probably need extension).



    • As articulated in July 2016, PaLS assessment is that the practical implementation timeline associated with delivering the agreed changes in technology procurement may end slightly beyond the life of the action plan in 2018, thus #26 which relates to implementing changes in technological procurement will not be met in full at that time.




    • #8 Embed the use of social clauses in public procurement contracts including consideration of “looked after children” . Due March 18. Work with SIB continues. Further work being taken forwards as part of the Transformation Workstreams within Health.



Other points to note/exceptions


  1. Collaboration arrangements well established. The recent HSC withdrawal from the collaborative Waste project with CPD was necessary due to risk factors to health

  2. Provision of guidance on contract management is a closed recommendation. However this PaLS guidance may need updating if the contract management PGN is significantly amended as may now be the case.




  1. At the last meeting, it was agreed that #7 on refining and developing social clauses should be treated as ongoing due to the evolving policy environment. Note that a HSC reform workstream is being initiated on social value and clauses more generally and that a social value act is being considered by DoF. This would place an enforceable duty on ALBs to consider social value in procurement. Those wishing to complain would have recourse to the Ombudsman. DoF are keen to stress that fulfilment of the duty could be achievable by small tweaks to the structure of a procurement. Organisations in the HSC may be the most affected by such a change and are encouraged to engage in the consultation.



  1. Other issues reported by exception in Trusts when last canvassed in December 2016 included:



  • One Trust reports substantial work ongoing to improve contract management



  • Two Trusts raise issues around delivering proportionate business cases in renewal scenarios - one raises the issue of resources to do so and another Trust requests guidance on doing so. The appropriate vehicle for DoH input is instead that the Department will offer comment on how NIGEAE is currently being complied with through test drilling or review type activities. Another Trust has indicated that its annual budgeting process provides the proportionate appraisal of ongoing baseline requirements.



    • Several continue to report that they continue to work towards prompt payment targets



    • quasi “test drilling” work promised by DoH with respect to #14 (ongoing) in connection with business cases and procurement - Finance Policy have advised that test drilling for this year is imminent.


Recommendations

  1. All relevant members should continue to take stock of progress in implementing ongoing or time limited targets as further returns will be requested for summer RPB.
