1 University of Brighton Sustainable Procurement Strategy Sustainable procurement in a challenging environment Introduction There is widespread recognition that climate change and the use of dwindling resources are two of the biggest challenges facing the world today. This has led to government setting an agenda for sustainable development in the public sector for the coming years: February 2009, the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) published an update to their Sustainable Development in Higher Education strategic statement and action plan. In relation to the goal of Sustainable Development it stated: For the UK Government and the devolved administrations, that goal will be pursued in an integrated way through a sustainable, innovative and productive economy that delivers high levels of employment; and a just society that promotes social inclusion, sustainable communities and personal well-being. This will be done in ways that protect and enhance the physical and natural environment, and use resources and energy as efficiently as possible. April 2010, the start of the Carbon Reduction Commitment which places an obligation on Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) to have plans in place on how they will reduce their carbon emissions. HEFCE requires these plans to be in place after To achieve this, the university has launched its Carbon Management Programme and has committed to a challenging target of reducing its carbon footprint by 50% in five years. May 2010, Prime Minister David Cameron announced that he wanted the coalition government to be the "greenest ever". October 2010, the Equality Act was enacted consolidating previous equalities legislation into a single act with the majority of provisions coming into force with the exception of the public service duty which is due in April October 2010, the Browne Report on Higher Education Funding and Student Fees was published. Additionally the coalition government set out its spending plans with the Comprehensive Spending Review indicating that government funding of HEIs will be significantly reduced. The likely outcome is a more competitive higher education environment with students showing a greater interest in how university resources are procured and deployed, particularly in the areas of value for money and sustainability.

2 October 2010, a report into public sector procurement by Sir Philip Green was published highlighting areas where greater efficiency in government spending could be achieved. These areas covered included commodity procurement, relationships with key suppliers and property portfolios. It can therefore be seen that to strengthen the University and its position for the future it is vital that its procurement policies and practices deliver the best value for the institution and are sustainable from an environmental, social and economic perspective. Vision This vision for procurement supports the university s Aims and Values (found in Appendix 1) and sets a clear framework for procurement throughout the University for the next four years. It is the vision that the university meets its requirements for works, supplies, services, and utilities in a way that achieves value for money on a whole life basis in terms of generating benefits to society and the economy, whilst minimising damage to the environment and providing for long term financial stability. This vision of sustainable procurement is supported by four strategic themes Sustainable procurement Governance Policy Process Delivery Strategic Theme 1 Governance Strong governance ensures that relevant checks and balances are in place to enable the achievement of university objectives. The university will therefore ensure that appropriate governance arrangements for the control of spend, suppliers and demand are in place. It will also make sure that these arrangements are widely communicated and understood by staff (and where appropriate strategic partners). These arrangements will include procurement decision making, delegation of financial authority and the separation of duties.

3 Strategic Theme 2 Policy Policies set a clear framework for procurement, giving direction to staff and clarifying the university s position to suppliers. A suite of procurement policy will be developed to support this including Procuring for Sustainable Objectives, Using New Suppliers, Value for Money and the use of university wide contracts, Collaboration including consortia and shared services, Customer Service and Whistle Blowing. Strategic Theme 3 Process Without defined and robust processes the delivery of sustainable procurement objectives and the management of risks are likely to be inconsistent. The university will therefore require appropriate procedures to eliminate this but be flexible enough to allow creativity and innovation. They will also need to be lean processes that minimise transaction costs and will cover tendering & evaluation, contract formation, waivers, the set up of suppliers and contract monitoring. The processes will be supported by appropriate guidance and standardised documentation e.g. tender documents, evaluation models etc that will be in line with best practice and all relevant legislation including (but not limited to) the EU Procurement Regulations, the Equality Act and the Health & Safety at Work Act. Strategic Theme 4 Delivery The delivery of the strategy s objectives can only be achieved by having highly skilled staff working in partnership with the best available suppliers. Consequently the university will increase the capacity both internally and externally to ensure that the best possible solutions are sustainably procured. Creating a Buying Mentality The cornerstone of any development in procurement practice is the capacity of the staff involved. This will be addressed this by instilling a Buying Mentality into staff who have procurement responsibility. This Buying Mentality is a cultural shift away from traditional transactional purchasing i.e. looking solely at fitness for purpose and purchase price to a position where staff consider the strategic implications of their decisions including: Approach to market The university s sustainability objectives Whole life costing (including energy usage, implementation, maintenance and disposal costs) Transactional costs (invoicing, time spent looking for suppliers etc) Supplier management

4 This will be achieved by introducing a more structured and systematic approach to training, covering topics such as sustainability, tendering & evaluation, EU procurement and commercial negotiation. To supplement this, a Buying Community will be fostered within the university by sharing best practice across the organisation via ad-hoc forums and improved communication of procurement matters via a greater utilisation of the university s Intranet, Staff Central. Attracting the Right Suppliers To ensure that the university contracts with high quality suppliers in sufficient numbers to ensure competition, the university will make best use of communication channels with suppliers and highlight the benefits of working with the university. It will also make clear its requirements and processes and seek out ways to minimise the burden that public sector procurement can put on supplier resources. This will be achieved by actively engaging with suppliers via, the university website, local business forums allowing potential suppliers to acquire information on upcoming contract opportunities, gain an understanding of the university s procurement procedures and its wider objectives. Consideration will also be given to the appropriate exposure of contract opportunities to make sure that methods are chosen in relation to the particular requirements and markets conditions of the procurement. This could include early supplier involvement, advertising in specific trade publications and websites, posting opportunities on particular web portals, etc Strategic Resourcing Finance Department s Procurement Services Division will remain a lean strategic function flexibly supporting the delivery of this strategy by supplementing its internal resources with those provided by external bodies such as expert consultancies. Such additional resource will be sought to deliver specialised procurement initiatives and effectively manage procurement workload in times of high demand. The university will also investigate where greater efficiency can be achieved by the sharing of resources with other organisations and will look to increased collaboration, knowledge sharing and the implementation of appropriate shared service models. The Strategy: Who is responsible? Everyone needs to recognise and act on their responsibilities in terms of achieving the desired outcomes of this strategy. This includes all members of the Board of Governors and members of Audit Committee. It also impacts on the actions of all university staff, but in particular deans, heads of department, procurement specialists and those responsible for purchasing on behalf of the University. All suppliers, contractors, partners, social enterprises and voluntary sector providers need to be guided by the strategy so that they know what is expected of them and how they will be supported and be able to remain valuable suppliers.

5 How will it be achieved? The strategy will be achieved by the Finance Department s Procurement Services Division working in close partnership with the various faculties and departments and is supported by a Procurement Action Plan that sets out a specific programme of actions and initiatives to deliver this strategy. The Action Plan will be updated every 12 months and form the basis of regular monitoring (see Appendix 1). To ensure that the university does not further develop its procurement function in isolation, makes best use of best practice, seeks collaborative opportunities and reduces costs, relevant guidance and expertise will be sought form other public sector bodies including other HEIs, Local Authorities, Central Government, NHS etc Measurement of Impact Currently management information relating to procurement activity is insufficient to be able to set a meaningful baseline. To rectify this, a basket of suitable Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) has been developed (found in Appendix 2). The KPIs will form the basis of an annual report to the Audit Committee assessing the performance university s procurement function. The public service provisions of the Equalities Act will come into force in April 2011 and are likely to include requirements to publish data on how effectively public sector bodies promote equality, through the services they provide commission and procure. The KPIs will be amended accordingly to reflect any change. Further to this the university will develop benchmarking data so that contracts across disciplines can be measured for value for money.

12 Appendix 2 Procurement Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) Below are the KPIs which will be used to measure the performance of the university s procurement function. The reasoning for the KPIs is categorised as Economic, Environmental or Social, these being the three generally recognised strands of sustainability. No. Spend profile KPIs Indicator Reasoning SP1 Total Supplier Spend Economic indicates the total level of spend with external suppliers. SP2 Total number of invoices Number Economic/Environmental gives an indication of the efficiency of the procurement function SP3 Average invoice value Economic gives an indication of the efficiency of the procurement function SP4 SP5 SP6 SP7 Number of suppliers set up in financial year Number Economic gives an indication of the efficiency of the procurement function Average number of days to payment Number Economic gives an indication of the efficiency of the payments function Number of suppliers used only once in financial year Number Economic gives an indication of the efficiency of the procurement function Total supplier spend with formal agreements & % of total Economic gives an indication of how risk is managed in contracts SP8 Number of tenders issued Number Economic gives an indication of the efficiency of the procurement function SP9 Value of tenders issued Economic gives an indication of the efficiency of the procurement function SP10 Tenders let using Whole Life Costing Number & % Economic Indicates that other costs other than initial purchase have been taken into account and ensures value for money Environmental indicates that the university is procuring in line with its Carbon management commitments
