Vehicle & Operator Services Agency (VOSA) will be implementing the ProcServe eMarketplace and purchase-to-pay (P2P) service for purchasing goods and service going forward. VOSA has become the latest public sector organisation to join the ProcServe Trading Network. The contract for the service will run for four years.
VOSA chose ProcServe following an extensive and thorough review of the electronic procurement options available to them to support its driver towards greater control and improved value for money for its expenditure with third party suppliers.
David Smith, senior commercial manager at VOSA, said: “Implementing the ProcServe eMarketplace is a key step in enhancing VOSA’s commercial performance and ability to deliver best value for money from its purchasing activities. This will improve access to best value contracts and will streamline our purchasing process, increasing transparency and accountability for every pound VOSA spends on goods and services. I believe strongly that the extensive work carried out by the entire VOSA P2P project team will pay major dividends when we go live with the service.”
VOSA expects to fully roll out the eMarketplace by October of this year.
