Why Are School's Bad At Procurement?

Recently hundreds of schools across England were forcibly closed due to a teachers strike on Tuesday, in a long-running dispute with the government over under-funding. We believe that schools can make changes to their procurement departments that can potentially produce savings to match the spending per pupil fall of 8% by 2020. Do you think schools can do more in terms of procurement to produce benefits? Will external factors such as governmental changes have an impact? Is an 8% saving an achievable goal within the time frame? Or do you think that they are already doing all that they can do? Read our blog for more details on our thoughts:
