Press Release – 20th October
Procurement specialist xynergie has called for Government savings announced in the Spending Review [Oct 20th 2010] to be achieved through improving procurement efficiencies, rather than by cutting frontline services.
xynergie chief executive Tony Lockwood said: “Government procurement inefficiencies were highlighted in Philip Green’s Efficiency Review. While the chancellor has said it will make savings by improving efficiency as well as making cuts, we are yet to see how they will achieve this. Technologies and methodologies are available and in-use in the private sector that completely rule out the levels of inefficiency shown in the Philip Green report.
“In the way it handles procurement, the Government needs to get up to speed with the private sector. It must re-engineer its procurement processes and make savings with backroom efficiency, not frontline cuts.”

The long awaited spending review is almost upon us and everyone is holding their breath!
Surely, the review will create as many opportunities as threats – it really is a matter of perspective!
Tony Lockwood, CEO of xynergie states: “The knock-on for the private sector from the impending public sector cuts means that there has never been a time when private sector collaboration has been more vital. We in the private sector must pull together to weather the storm. When faced by external pressures, we are all in the same boat. We must cluster together and do what we are good at – innovate, change shape where necessary and boost efficiencies to avoid cuts of our own.
Procurement is a last bastion of hope for many companies seeking to survive uncertain seas. Outsourcing provides an answer for swift, decisive change that will ensure survival. Public & Private sector collaboration – now there’s a thought!”

It really does support what we have been saying for a long time – there is a real need for Government – Central and Local to come together and collaborate across back office functions. This will drive out massive efficiencies without the negative impact on front office services.
xynergie have the skills, experience and will to deliver massive value, improved performance, reductions in costs and efficiency gains across both public and private sectors.
