Has your Academy Trust implemented its procurement strategy yet, asks Schools’ Buying Club?
As the education sector faces funding uncertainty with the prospect of a 12% cut in government spending over the next five years in real terms, academies are increasingly considering how best to ensure that they are maximising their budgets.
Schools’ Buying Club is helping academy trusts develop their long-term procurement strategies to take advantage of the economies of scale that they can generate through collaborative purchasing. Whether you are a single academy or a multi-academy trust, working together not only creates economies of scale, but also ensures that the procurement activity remains compliant with policy and legislation. This ultimately generates savings that can be pumped directly into front line services to improve educational outcomes for pupils.
Academy Today is an new innovative quarterly publication and website that covers the latest news, updates and developments relevant to all aspects of the academy school sector. With tips and advice including guidance, suggestions and opinions from leading experts, Academy Today promises to be the definitive resource looking at the way academies are run in today’s ever-changing educational environment.
