Since late 2014, the OGP has been working with public sector body clients (“PSB clients”) to identify and deliver sourcing needs. Based on initial client requirements gathered, the OGP developed a programme of work to leverage common requirements, which was published in December 2014.
PSB client requirements gathering has been ongoing since the initial programme was published. In view of the significant volume, value and complexity of requirements across the State, the OGP reviews its sourcing programme on a quarterly basis to prioritise activity that will optimise the aggregation of these requirements and the savings achievable.
An updated Schedule of Frameworks and Contracts has been published on www.procurement.ie
. The schedule sets out the OGP, EPS and Local Government service delivery plan for Q1 to Q3 2016 and provides details of when key frameworks and contracts will be available for use by PSB clients.
